This is Minnie, she is the person I am working with in the S.O.S program.
I asked her just what was her job title and this is what she told me.
My role....actually, I'm the president of Empowerment Unlimited Inc. This company was created to provide training and service needs to the community, with a focus on the 'at risk' population. This program we're involved in now, is directed at unskilled and unemployed residents of American Samoa. With the loss of jobs, thru the closing of the cannery, the tsunami and the decline of the global, national and local economy, it becomes important to equip this population with skills to help them find employment, improve their employable skills and help them find ways to become and stay self-reliant
Now I just need to find out how that fits in with the Human Resource Dept because that is where her office is.....still alot to know.
Here she is trying the Go cutter....I heard a take in of air when she cut her first piece....and almost a squeal. That said it all right there. She called a few people in to view the process. She was just so excited.
That was on Wednesday!!
Thursday the W-Cap group (non-profit) came over. They came last week to learn hexies.
Here is one gal using the Go cutter...she didn't want to stop.
Here she is with the hexies she made during the week. She wants to make a bed cover...very ambitious for her first project.
Another gal using the Go cutter....making more hexies for the week. This gal made picture frames out of her hexies. She didn't bring them to show but her husband was sure impressed with them.
