Lumotar’s life changing opportunity

Lumotar completed the My First Job program in July 2017.  One year on, she can’t believe the transformation in her life. She shares with us her thanks.

“It has been a great pleasure to have the opportunity to participate in the My First Job Assistant Chef program. I have learnt a lot during the program not only the skills of cooking well, but also communicating with others. I have never been to school so I found it challenging to remember all the names of the menu items that we were learning to cook. The more time we all spent together, practicing and testing each other, the easier it became. The 14 of us girls were all able to complete the program.”

“I am currently the main chef at a little kitchen. The owner found that I am the best cook in the restaurant. The customers enjoy my food and always give me compliments on my cooking skills. At first I was nervous because I have never worked in such a professional environment before but I am now full of confidence that I have my very first long term, stable job. I am so happy with my life now and I could not believe that all happened to me. Without your support I would not have had this life changing opportunity.” 

Thank you to Gabriela and Dex for sponsoring Lumotar through her Assistant Chef training. You have given her the opportunity of her life and a future of independence.
