"What makes my job at S H E so special is that it's a program that doesn't just find projects to grow the workshop, no. On the contrary, it is a program that invests a lot in us as women. S H E is concerned about our financial, moral and social well-being.
I also like the atmosphere in S H E because when we attend the monthly meetings with our team, we feel that our voice counts. There is a kind of mutual respect and we are seen as the young bosses that we are, not like women from disadvantaged backgrounds who are illiterate or don't know their rights. Most people just think of taking advantage of women like us, but at S H E, we are respected and cared for. Our leaders teach us how to read, and write, how to live in society, they teach us about our rights as women.
First I learned to read and write, and next, we will be learning how to manage our salaries. Frankly speaking for me, there is no better place than S H E."
