As Pink Month unfolds, celebrating strength, resilience, and hope, we’re thrilled to share the success of our first-ever “Ang Ganstilyo ni Ina Workshop” under the initiative “New Skill, New Hope.” More than just a success, it’s about the inspiration and newfound hope it brings to the participating mothers.

This workshop goes beyond learning crocheting; it’s a journey for both moms and Rotaractors. Guided by Ms. Adeline Boyonas Enad, we’re exploring crochet knots, history, and terms, making it an exciting adventure.

For the moms, it’s a step towards new skills and potential income opportunities. Creating beautiful crochet projects becomes a therapeutic outlet, empowering women with skills for financial independence. Talks about partnerships are ongoing, showing our commitment to sustaining these skills.
