“Napakalaking tulong ng Project Life Subic dahil nabigyan kami ng pagkakataong makapag-aral ng libre.”
Marilyn V. Diaz is a 58-year-old housewife who enrolled in Project Life Subic’s Sewing Program after learning about it through Facebook. She lives with her husband, who works as a driver, and she has a goal of contributing to the family’s finances as soon as she completes the training.
The lesson she really enjoyed is pattern cutting, and the skills she acquired include minor troubleshooting, knowledge of the different parts of the machine, and maintenance. She believes that with the skills she has acquired, she will be able to buy her own equipment and start her own business from the comfort of her home in the near future. Marilyn plans to accept orders for items such as pillows, curtains, and rugs.
With her experience at PLS, she can proudly say that it was worth it as it provided her with an opportunity to grow.
