Another batch of young Beauticians have rolled out from Mama Margaret Academy of Beauticians . Because of Covid Protocols we had to restrict the number of trainees to 13 as against the usual number of 25. Another batch of 12 pupils will start training immediately as the twelth batch. So far 273 young girls have graduated from this academy and all of them are making an income to support their families. We are indeed proud that this Vocational Training Program has helped so many families to stand on their own legs.
