Single Mom Now Fully Employed

Kanzhe is a single mom to her 3 year old son. As a girl she only had the opportunity to go to school until grade 6. Because of her lack of education, very few opportunities were available to her to support herself and her son.

In July 2019, she joined the My First Job Assistant Chef Program and is now fully employed. She is working at a local restaurant as an assistant chef and has a good, steady income. “I am employed and so happy to have a sustainable income. Even though my son is young, I know he is grateful for what you have done for us. This is my happiest time. Thank you so much for providing such an opportunity to me and to the other women in the program as well. I know I will be able to give my son a good life.” 

 

Kanzhe is one of the 120 women who took intensive training under the My First Job: Assistant Chef Program during 2019– thanks to ZURU for underwriting this project.
