Evelyn holds tray with bread
Evelyne bakes for her family

When Evelyne missed lessons and didn’t do her homework, she had to retake a year of school.

Evelyn quit school after third grade. She took a job in the fields and sold fruit and vegetables, or helped her three younger sisters. When Evelyne was 18, a friend told her that FVS Amade ran courses for young people who hadn’t finished school.

Evelyne went to FVS Amade’s offices and was able to choose between courses in baking, car repair and sewing. She decided to be a baker. She can use the money she earns to help her mum and pay for her sisters’ schooling.
