One of these is Nicola Adonis. With her artistic flair she began by collecting old beads and other materials, turning them into earrings, bracelets and necklaces which she sold to relatives and others in her community.
But with the ‘Give yourself a Job’ training, Nicola grew in ideas and on a business level, also took a leadership role in her group of participants.
Nicola’s hand-made products quickly expanded to include headbands and handbags from T-shirt fabric. Her jewellery became much more structured. And the highlight is that her merchandise is now being sold through a local shop.
From life being a daily struggle against too many odds, Nicola is now free of her biggest worries – the income from her products helps her to support her family financially.
Thank you for helping to turn people’s lives around, by giving them the tools to ‘give themselves a job’.
