We want to
“In terms of overall development, I also have an education program for our crafters, so for example, the woman who has been with me the longest currently is undertaking a Business Management Diploma through evening study courses which are paid for by the business. I also provide the women with regular readings focusing on self-development and self-actualization. What I am really excited about and what really motivates me is not just this notion of employment. Still, instead, the empowerment of women, cultivating a real sense of self-esteem and self-worth, and a feeling that you can ascend out of your current personal circumstances.”
