New Opportunity for this Single Mom

I have never been to school and could only find work here and there as a waitress but because of my poor health, I can’t work long hours. I am a single mother with two sons.

Since I was a child, I liked making clothes. My mother can make clothes so I learned a little from her. I was accepted into the Husky Energy Tailoring Skills program in October 2018 and through four months of systematic learning, I learned how to make clothes independently. I can make Mongolian and Tibetan clothes. Tibetan clothes are relatively simple and I’m good at making them. Mongolian clothes are more challenging to make especially the laces, and usually takes five or six days to finish.

I successfully graduated from the program in July 2019 and began working. I am happy that I can now earn money from something that I enjoy doing. I now earn a good salary with bonus commission for each piece of clothing I finish. I am grateful for this opportunity and I know I will be able to support my family.

   

24 women graduated the 2019 Husky Energy Tailoring skills for Women progam. Not only have they learned a valuable skill but they have found a new family. These women have formed a close connection, and support and encourage each other as they venture into a new world of opportunity. Thank you to Husky Energy for believing in these women and giving them the chance to change their lives.

My name is Tsedan and I am 29 years old. I missed out on going to school because my parents thought that boys are more important than girls. Now that I have my own family, I want my three children to be able to go to school - an opportunity that I didn’t have.
