Dorota's initiative has provided educational opportunities for Bisne (23) and Wilbonh (22) through Instituto Progresso Real's training courses.

Dorota's Initiative: Motivated by a desire to effect positive change, Dorota orchestrated a plant sale fundraiser that was a great success. The plants were home-grown from cuttings by Dorota and with the support of her friends and family she as able to raise £165! The funds garnered facilitated the sponsorship for Bisne and Wilbonh to pursue educational training courses through Domingos Mam. These courses are tailored to equip participants with practical skills conducive to career advancement in education as they want to be teachers.
