“It’s the fourth cycle of the supporting single mothers project in Belize City. We are asking single mothers to come in and fill out an application if they are interested. We offer skills training in four areas namely sewing, cosmetology, child care services and housekeeping. The program is free of cost and we also do personal development sessions and work place preparations. They can visit our office at 26 Albert Street. They also have to do a two week on the job training and they get a certificate at the end of the program and they also have to do one month orientation. We are trying to empower them so they can empower themself.”

The program is free of cost and applications should be in by Friday, March 4.
