Testimonials

Shokufa Tajik

"I love that when ladies come to the WWBT Center, they are happy and relaxed. When I see them happy, I am happy. I am an artist and have helped paint most of the walls here. I know that I am valued and appreciate here and that is a good feeling."

"When I come here I feel excited and busy with activities. I love yoga, I do it everyday. I also learn art, computers, and how to speak to people. When we are in our tents, we stay alone and do not interact. Here at the center we talk to everybody and we learn how to be kind to ourselves and each other."

"I love that I can learn here. I take art, music and language class. I also love to see the children smile. In the camp they don’t have anything to play with - there are no toys for them or anywhere safe to play. Children are suppose to be happy and here they can be."
