knowledge for setting up and running
your own business.

of women who come here
with their children. In this way, they
help them acquire skills
and qualification in a given area, in
the form that is suitable to them.
While mothers learn, their children are
taken care of by professional
staff and have a good time.
The Training Center’s facilities, food,
tuition and other program
activities are all provided by
organizers and sponsors who also cover
all expenses included in the training.
Courses are run by top experts and
specialists in the selected field.
