Skills Training Centre – a source of joy and creativity
Liliana Ball, Head of the Centre, explains: “When we come together, it’s not just about learning a skill, but sharing life together and creating beautiful memories”.
Offering sustainable help
Educational opportunities are especially important in development cooperation: They help ensure that people who are currently dependent on support can shape their lives more independently or even free themselves of the help of others altogether in the future. Our projects have shown us, time and time again, that people manage to get out of the dependence cycle.
You can support us achieve this!
A fresh start in Athens – a morning in the Ukrainian class
Sewing machines are “ablaze” amid colourful threads and thimbles, steam irons and smooth, dainty fabrics, while the counters display various soap shapes which emanate scents of orange, lavender, vanilla or rosemary.
This Centre offers community, exchange and new friends.
Help in word and deed – „A gift from God“
Liliana, the Centre director, says that “the STC walls have heard many sad stories, but also happy ones, laughter and tears, celebrations and birthdays …”. On Women’s Day, she gifted her students a cake and handmade gifts. Their eyes shone with a joy that you feel when you experience appreciation. We pray that the students will continue their work and see themselves as God sees them: wonderful and special!
