After eight weeks of hard work 48 women graduated from the Makoi Women’s Vocational Training Centre yesterday.

Training centre acting manager Shahana Didar said: “From cooking classes 23 women graduated and 25 graduated from sewing classes. This training was for under privileged women.”

Most of the women were single mothers and women, who lived at the Housing Assistance and Relief Trust (HART) estate.

Ms Didar said the course provided an opportunity to boost their confidence.

“Some only reached primary level. This gives them a chance to learn skills that will enhance their lives.

“Our next course starts on the 15th of January. There will be new trainers from Indonesia. The next course will include embroidery, pastry and hydroponics,” she said.

Anyone can join Makoi Women’s Vocational Training Centre as long as they are above 18 years and this includes only under privileged women.
