I had no skills. My future was uncertain and I felt that the world was very unfair to me. I had no means of making a living until I learned new skills from the Women’s Enterprise Centre. Now I am capable of earning a living for the rest of my life
After A/Levels I had no real options but one of my friends gave me information about FoG and I followed the Programming and Web Design courses at their IT Centre. Now I am a senior QAT for Trax Smart Recognition Retail System. FoG led me to the best opportunity I ever had in my life, the people at FoG did not let me down.
I lost three of my sisters and my nephew on the day of the tsunami. I was afraid of the ocean after that but wanted to overcome it and learn to dive. Because of the skills I gained at the FoG Diving & Training Centre I am now a skilled diver working in Dubai as a lifeguard.
I mortgaged my house to go overseas for employment and lost it. Now my family lives with my Uncle and if not for FoG I would not be able to provide for them. I am earning a salary today because of the NVQ 4 Certificate level training I received at the Electrical Installation Course.
