Emmaus Women’s Centre conducts new courses
In August 2008, the programme was widened to include training in Beauty Care (hairdressing, facial care, manicure and pedicure), and Cooking & Baking. The courses offered will be for an expanded 1½ year period. In addition, the core curriculum will include English and Discipleship.
EWC, which is located in Angsnoul, about 40 km north of Phnom Penh, aims to reach out to young girls, aged between 13 and 25, from poor families, with few or no skills. Besides equipping them with a skill, EWC also hopes that they will come to know the Lord, and be able to return to their villages upon completion of their courses to start small groups where they are, while supporting themselves with the training they have received.
If need be, EWC may look into helping them with some start-up costs to enable them to run their own small businesses.
