We are always excited to share the stories of the students who have come through Opening Doors. Agatha was a student with us and recently transitioned out. She now has returned back to the training center, but this time as an employee helping to cook for the other students at Opening Doors. Agatha has been a beam of positivity and encouragement for not only the students, but everyone at the Center.
A current project that takes the children through training workshops teaching them how to make candles of all shapes, sizes, and scents which are sold to raise funds to support Opening Doors.
A current project that teaches the students responsibility by having them raise a chicken. Taking care of an animal also helps them to develop skills essential for taking care of themselves.
40% of Opening Door's expenses are covered by the sale of candles and other products produced in training workshops. The remaining 60% comes from fundraising efforts. family, friends, and well wishers. Your support helps us to continue the mission to care for and train disabled children.
