i have been involved with the organization for two years . what a motivating group of folks and programs. i always come away from a board meeting with a sense that we are making a difference. what a great trip this has been and our future is bright.
We are so greatful to be able to help so many women get an outfit to wear to work through WHEAT clothing silo program . They provide a free outfit so that women are able to go to work feeling good about how they look . It has been an honor to be on the board with such wonderful caring people.WHEAT is truly an organization for helping the less fortunate become empowered to be successful in life.All of their programs are run with such grace and ease with great Directional help from Tamera Zivic .
This Non-Profit does a great job in helping to stamp out hunger by empowering women and getting them ready for a meaningful job. There is a training and mentoring program aspect of WHEAT which can lead a woman to work in the retail industry as more than a "shop girl". The educational aspect of WHEAT incompasses learning about FAIR TRADE and the "how and why" it benefits growers and artisans alike. The Director of WHEAT, Tamera Zivic, is a skilled compassionate person with boundless energy who believes that the way to combat hunger is by providing education and job skills so that a woman can work at a living wage.
Thanks, Judith, you are one of the reasons that WHEAT works for people - particularly women who are striving to become selfsustaining and overcoming great barriers to do so!!!
