It’s the new year, and our instinct to start drinking green smoothies and hitting the gym is kicking in. It’s the time of planning for the year ahead and thinking through how we want to invest our time, energy and money. Enter: New Year’s resolutions.

Most of our resolutions tend to face inward and are centered on the self. How can I take better care of myself? How can I move more? How can I cut back on or add something to my life?

Women's Vocational Training in Armenia

Shirak Diocese of the Armenian Apostolic Church

“Success in work,” said Lusine, “is about trying the impossible to make the possible happen.”
Lusine, age 30, has completed a vocational training course in sewing and clothing design with IOCC partner the Shirak Diocese of the Armenian Apostolic Church. The Church’s educational center in Gyumri, Armenia – one of the country’s poorest areas – offers vocational training, especially for women, with courses for in-demand occupations like culinary arts, woodworking, cosmetology, and clothing construction and design. Your gifts help IOCC to support this center, which trains 250–300 unemployed women a year.
