Welfare to wellbeing

A Comprehensive Vocational Training Program for Disadvantaged Women

Welfare to Wellbeing has been helping unemployed and underprivileged women since 2009.

Welfare to Wellbeing provides long-term unemployed women with comprehensive vocational training and empowerment workshops, as well as therapeutic, nutritional, and job placement support to successfully find and maintain gainful employment. The program, which has 60-70 graduates a year,  equips previously long-term unemployed women with the skills to reduce their reliance on welfare. As a result, alumnae are empowered to transform their lives, serving as financially-independent role models for their children and leaders in their communities.

The course gave me a lot of knowledge related to employment. Thanks to the course I was able to change my attitude and have chosen not to give up. Today, I am able to focus on the 'here and now.' Post-course guidance has given me tools for proper conduct at work, how to work systematically, and how to push myself forward. Today I know I am capable and have potential! I feel that work gives me value for life!
