"NOW I HAVE 100% OF MY DREAM."
You helped us invest in an economic development program at IRCOM that is helping Jeanine become certified in childcare, so that she can help other women in her community better their lives.
When I was a little girl, I liked to work with the children. When I look at them, they make me happy. When I was in high school, I studied how to teach primary students.
In my country, Burundi, there was a war. So I didn't have a chance to do my job. When I came to Canada in 2010, I got that chance. Here, I have the peace to do my job.
When I'm finished the course, I may continue my education at College Universitaire de St. Boniface. Or I could look for a job at a daycare centre or do daycare in my house.
Then I would be helping another woman who can't find a job or go to work because she has kids. When I help them, I'm doing my job.
