Teresia


Teresia is a positive young woman who dreamed of becoming a seamstress one day. Read on…her dream is a reality. She lives with her mother Maria, her older brother Geraldi and her younger sister Hyasinta.

This family has struggled ever since the father took his own life. The grandfather also lives with the family and looks after the family cow. Mom tries to earn some income by carrying 20 litre containers of banana beer to the local bars at 4 a.m.

Teresia completed Year 2 at Hugo Mill Vocational Training School in the Tailoring program.  ABCD presented Teresia with a sewing machine and wishes her well in finding a tailor to work with as she pursues her dream.
