Her entrance into the seamstress apprentice program will allow her to have a career and help take care of the children.

Anglelina is 20 years old and the eldest of six children. She couldn't continue her education after Junior High because there were no funds to pay her school fees.

They also needed her to contribute to family income and could not afford for her to lose that income to become an apprentice.
