Nadia is a Syrian refugee now living in Dlyal. She is the mom of 5 children and they have not heard from the husband in 4 years, they suspect that he is dead. She knew a little sewing but not much. She went to the center and took the classes. Surviving was extremely difficult, she didn’t even have bread to feed her children. After the sewing classes neighbors began to bring her mending and  she started to receive an income. She’s so happy for the money to feed her family. She says, “Thank you for bringing the sewing machines to the center.”  She also has a friend who is a refugee in Irbid. Nadia told her about the sewing classes and how she’s now generating income for her family. Her friend also took sewing classes and is making her living through sewing as well.  Now that they have become seamstresses, they are now an integral part of their communities and  are very happy as their dignity is also restored. They are very proud to be able to sew! (This is a project called “Maharat” founded by an 11th grade student, Maryam Al Ammari)
