iSisters’ programs provide real, measurable results to the women who attend them. For our learners who often may feel they have no way out of their current situation, being able to make the first step up the ladder of success to a new future is an important outcome of our courses. Time and time again, our learners reinforce that in addition to the technical skills and knowledge they gain, the most important achievement is building their own self-confidence.
“V”. was a single mother struggling with PTSD. When she lost her mother 2 years ago, she thought the darkness in her life would never end. While working at Stepstone House, a residence for immigrant women, V. learned about the Entrepreneurship program offered there by iSisters, and decided to give it a try. Now, eight weeks later, V. is ready to try some new things in her life. She is planning to return to school, and dreams of maybe one day opening a nursing home in honour of her mother.
