"Our lives have started to change when my child started to go to child care at the center. My son was very introverted and shy. His attitudes totally changed at the child care center. He didn’t know how to read and write; he learnt it here. Thanks to Karabiga Women and Child Center, I could also spare time for myself. I attended the courses here and I discovered my talent in sewing."
"Thanks to Karabiga Women’s Cooperative, I got to know the Karabiga Woman and Child Center. I participated in the courses and spent quality time at the center. I had never met such a social project before. I saw the center’s social and cultural contributions to the women of Karabiga."
