Relationship building is important for the women in the Quito Recycling Community. When they participate in livelihood training, relationships are a major factor in how they bond and gain trust.
ER’s Teresa Jimenez has led workshops in health, nutrition, life and livelihood skills, and faith In the last several years. As many as 60 women have participated in these skill-building opportunities at ER’s Quito Family Resource Center. This year, Teresa had to switch things up because of COVID and began teaching online.
One of the women, Liliana, used a skill she learned through a Zoom training session – how to make yogurt – to provide help income for her family. She’s also generously sharing yogurt and encouraging women whose families are struggling. This is a wonderful sign of personal growth, faith and maturity.
“Liliana attends our workshops regularly and she is sharing her knowledge with other women. She helps younger women learn skills and older women who cannot read and are not able to work. She invites them to her home to attend online workshops and participate in worship. It is incredible how Liliana shows love the other ladies and helps them. She is sharing the love of God.”
