I learnt not judge people and to try to see them for who they really are. Now I have more insight into the working environment.
I learnt that if you trust in God everything is possible and that you can do nothing without Him.
Follow Jesus, Trust GOD, Be am example. Talk to people who are out of line, dont just watch. It starts with me to change a community.
It was a big opportunity for me to know how to prepare for a interview and what types of question they ask. I also learnt how to prepare my CV.
I learnt that there are different ways of communicating, and how to listen carefully. It had a significant impact on me especially the communications and conflict session I applied the I-message which really helped my husband and I to understand each other better I have also learnt to put all my faith in god and to believe anything is possible and that god has big plans for me.
It really helped change my mind set in a positive way. The session about Dreams and Goals helped a lot. I now know where to begin, how to get where I want to be. I now believe that there is a reason for me being here. I am more positive in many ways. This course did help me to look deep inside of me, what do I want out of life and how to get it. My personal relationship has grown more positively over this period, I am more relaxed and not so stressed. Thanks to FCD.
I learnt the true value of myself and grew in self-esteem and confidence. I lost my mother during this time and can still say that I am strong and a survivor. Life stories taught me how to treat others and myself. I now know what I want to achieve in life and I know my 5 year plan. I also learnt the importance of the relationship between the employer and employee and how communication is a powerful key to success I can now say in public with confidence what is right and wrong.
I learnt how to be positive.
I was a very negative person at times and never believed in myself. I felt useless, that made me feel down and I never reached a point where I wanted to be. When I came to FCD I learnt many things especially the dreams and goals. That made me think positively and believe in myself, now I can reach my goal and go where I wanted to be.
I am so happy that I came here because it helped me share more and become In love with myself. Where I live there are a lot of young people that I know that have what it takes to become someone in this world and this course can help a lot just like it helped me and I am proud of myself.

I discovered myself and have learned to think positively. I have grown in terms of gaining knowledge and my willingness to learn new skills. They have helped me to be emotionally strong and not keep stuff to myself but speak up and express myself.

This Job Readiness Course was so beneficial, because it made me see things and people in a new light. Every morning I looked forward to waking up to come here, knowing there is something to look forward to for the day. I new I would get inspired and motivated by each Teacher that came to the class. They really made a difference and taught us new things. Also the friendly people that work at FCD, you are wonderful and are doing a great Job.
Before I came to FCD I was praying but not everyday. I prayed only on Sundays but when pastor Mark taught us, everything changed for me now I pray every day.
It was very emotional in the life story session, I thought that I was the only one who had a sad story about my life, till I heard my classmates speak about their life stories.
I learned to be more open-minded because we all come from different backgrounds and religions. I learnt to have a vision in life is very important and to know what is the difference between a goal and a dream.
Most importantly it made me realise that I need God in my life.
When I came here I was an empty bottle. At FCD they helped me to find myself and came out full of confidence and self-respect. I learnt how to build a good relationship with my family and friends.
This course helped me to boost my confidence. I am more positive now and I believe that with GOD anything is possible. It made me draw near to GOD, because it is only through his grace that we are here today. Everyday is a blessing.
I learnt more than what I had bargained for.
I discovered something about me that I really did not know about myself.I also gained confidence of speaking in front of people. The training impacted me more than I thought now I know my rights and how to live a healthy life.
I have learnt more PC skills that I’ve never known before.I have learnt how to work in a team with different people and how to communicate better. I am now aware of the dangers that our country faces with diseases and Social Ills.
You learn a lot out of the FCD program. Thank you to the caring people who come to volunteer at FCD.
