Nail Technician Course for Tahula
Tahula is 22 years old and is the eldest of 5 children. She lives with her mother and siblings in a 3-room apartment in an underprivileged neighborhood of Jerusalem.
Tahula’s parents had a complicated, drawn-out and difficult relationship. Her father left the family 6 years ago, and they have lost touch with him. Tahula’s mother is 40 years old and supports the family through her working as a cleaner and the help of government stipends.
During the stressful years of her teens, Tahula and two of her siblings dropped out of school. Today, her two youngest siblings attend school regularly, and Tahula herself has gone back to school to complete her education and pursue a vocation.
Tahula has proven to be an excellent and dedicated student, as well as a talented manicurist. Tahula would like to certify as a gel manicure technician, but neither she nor her mother can afford the course fees.
A certification course would not only enable Tahula to become financially independent herself but would also help her create her own success story, acting as a positive role model for her siblings and others in the community looking to leave the cycle of poverty.
