Memorable Encounter between Trainees and Program Partner

My First Job Assistant Chef Program for 30 women officially starts today.

These women, along with the program coordinator and Captivating staff, were also very happy to meet the six representatives from our program partner, Zuru.

 

 

The women each shared their story. Most of them are single young women and single mothers who have never attended school or only had little education. Hearing that teachers are very professional and strict, they were very excited and a little nervous. Nevertheless, they look forward to receiving professional cooking training and then finding a job to create a better future for their families and children.

Thanks to Zuru and the 12th Annual Charity Auction for offering these 30 women a chance to change their lives.
