Mansoureh to follow her dream
The generosity of the Clayton Wesley Uniting Church congregation has helped Mansoureh Ghanbari to take her first step into a new career.
Since becoming a part of the church congregation, Mansoureh has advocated to get her two daughters into school so they can develop their English language skills and have a bright future.
The three women regularly volunteered at the church and assisted in starting up Hope’s Café, donating many volunteer hours in cooking, planning, waitressing and welcoming patrons.
The church congregation recently donated money for both Sepideh and Fatima to attend school and buy uniforms, with the help of the advocacy of congregation members and Uniting Communities.
Mansoureh was so thrilled and has since considered her own future vocation, expressing to other members of the community that her ambition is to work in aged care, assisting and caring for the elderly.
Today Minister Paul Turley announced to those at the café that the Church Council on behalf of the congregation, would provide an interest-free loan to Mansoureh, so she can attend a 10-week Red Cross course to obtain the qualification she needs to follow her dream.Mensoureh has
Shocked and elated, she hugged Bev Watson, who was one of the advocates for the money that would send her back to school.
“What a wonderful surprise!”, she said.
We wish her all the best.
