Strong Woman for Her Family

Gengsangkyid, 34, lives with her father (88) and son (16). After her divorce, she began raising her child alone. She talks with her former husband occasionally and allows him to visit for the sake of their son, but ultimately, she provides for the family especially for her son who is now in junior high school.

Their main source of income is the harvest from their small piece of farmland. She also receives assistance from the government for temporary jobs. However, she desires to find a more stable and permanent job.

“I’ve never been to school due to our family’s financial condition. Because of this, it’s very difficult for me to find a stable job. My family depends on me that’s why I need to be strong.

I’m very fortunate to be able to join the My First Job Assistant Chef Program. I’ve never been to any cooking class, but I like cooking very much and really want to develop my skills.

During the three months of training, I encountered many difficulties but the teachers’ careful instructions helped me a lot. I mastered most of the 40 dishes in just three months, thank you!

I hope to find a stable job after the training and provide better for my family. Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to learn. It is through your love and help that I have the chance to realize my dreams.”
