Testimonials

"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."
