“When I finally decided to come to the TCCTP Office, I was at my wits end. I felt like I had to build up all my courage to stoop to beg for food. I was frustrated, I had no money, and I had no job. I felt like giving up with life. When I came to the TCCTP Office I could not hold back the tears. The tears flowed down my cheeks as I shared my story with the officer. When the officer explained what the programme was all about, I then realized that it was not about begging for food, but it was all about helping me to develop and getting a better life. The officer counseled me, kept in contact with me until I received the card. I had five CXC Subjects, but was never successful in gaining employment. The officer assisted me in seeking employment with the Division of Labor. I was given a temporary position as a Clerical Assistant. I was interviewed and was successful to commence The Nursing Assistant Programme. Presently I am in my second year of training. My life was changed from the day I set foot in the TCCTP Office. I will never forget the kindness and the professionalism that was meted out to me. I will never stop saying thanks to TCCTP. Thank you.
