Before exiting the program, Shade leadership met with each student individually and talked about his or her hopes and dreams. From that discussion, we worked together to formulate a plan for their success.

While some wanted to continue in the soap business, others had great ideas for products or services that would best serve their home villages. Each student was equipped with the materials or capital needed to launch their business plan and was given a bicycle to aid in transportation.

We are proud of our students and look forward to the day when we can continue to offer services and resources to this vulnerable people group.
