Closure and Celebration of Spanish Classes

As you have heard recently, Isa Fernández, Marian Bootello and Loida Martín have been hosting a Spanish course for Muslim women at the GAiN office in Terrassa. The 2010-2011 school year has come to an end and there was a big party to celebrate. Isa Fernández tells us about the year and how the end-of-the-year party went....

"It was great to celebrate another of these typical parties again where we eat all kinds of sweets! In addition, this year we had a small ceremony to give the students diplomas which so many of them were excited about.

One important thing I think we´ve accomplished this year is to integrate 5 of these women into other professional training courses: cooking, hotel management, pharmacy...or help them to get directly into a professional training course. We are now in the process of early registration for them in these courses, but if they actually get the chance to enter and complete these courses, I think it would be a great achievement for them that will radically change their lives.

What´s more, we are working with the local government in Terrassa to establish important partnerships and job roles for the upcoming school year 2011-2012."
