Helen lives together with her husband and her five children in Subic. Until recently she took care of her family as a housewife, however, her passion is sewing.

Helen’s sister encouraged her to make an apprenticeship at Project Life in order to make money with her talent: „The apprenticeship was very helpful. Compared to the past, when I had no clue about entrepreneurship, I now have the motivation and ideas necessary to open up a little store.

After the apprenticeship, Helen would like to buy a sewing machine and sell her handmade products.
At the graduation ceremony in November Helen spoke in front of the course:
“I really enjoyed every single day I spent here – learning how to sew together with other trainees is so much fun. I’ll go home with a lot of knowledge and maybe someday I can start my own business. Thanks to our teachers for making the time here unforgettable.”
