Comments received from the participants.

“Thank you for bringing this training to our centre this has opened my eyes on how to make profits.  Now I will be able to expand my hotel business and try to make more profits which I will use to build a house of my own, instead of paying rent every month.  I will be able to give jobs to more people.  I will also expand my poultry farming business.  This will enable me to send my children’s to secondary school.”

 

Bilal Muslim Mission of Kenya would like to thank all those involved in this training program.  Special thanks go to International Development & Relief Foundation (IDRF) for co-sponsoring this project.
