The possibility to get a job thanks to new skills and confidence

“I’ve already got a job; I do cleanings. Now I feel more fulfilled and valued.”

Aurizanda Gomes
37 years old

“My family is poor. From an early age, I started working in the fields, so I didn’t have the opportunity to go to school. I came to Portugal to get better living conditions for myself and my children. But it was not easy to go to a different country without knowing how to read and write; I couldn’t get a job. At the Accras Association, where I get food aid, I heard that Alfalit teaches people to read and write. I signed up out of fear. I started to learn to read and write very slowly. The hardest were writing and math. It’s been six months, and I can now read and write messages on my mobile phone, subtitles on TV, street names, phone calls, check the time, read prices in supermarkets.”
