"Through this training I found my purpose in life; I do this to provide my children with a decent living and a university education, which I couldn’t get myself."
"I accompanied my mother to the training, and she had no prior knowledge in weaving. Through her daily participation in the training, the craft grew on her, and I used to learn and participate with other ladies who have reading and writing difficulties."
"We finally have a clear roadmap that makes our work within the association much clearer, all thanks to JRF and USAID’s “Development for Change” project that supports civic society initiatives."
"We now believe that we need a way to facilitate and institutionalize our work, which can be achieved through enforcing a methodology that guarantees sustainable development and success."
"The training encouraged me to speak out and express my feelings, I learned to "empty my mind", which we learnt as a self-care strategy in the training."
"The training provided me with a valuable opportunity to evaluate my communication skills, clarify professional boundaries, and learn new models of supervision communication with my team."
"My son enjoys coming to the center immensely. One time he was so excited about going to the Makani center he couldn’t sleep, and he made me take him to it early the next morning before it had even opened!"
"My dream has finally come true, I am finally able to learn Arabic again. I especially enjoy my Arabic lessons because of all the interactive tools we use. I want to become a famous journalist in the future!"
"I am extremely happy now, the Life Skills training has changed my life! With continued volunteerism, we are sure to create positive change in other people’s lives for a brighter future."
