The training, the knowledge, the self-control, knowing how to empower yourself, knowing how to fill in the gaps - that doesn't have a price.
That stays in your mind and will guide you forever, you'll be empowered forever.
Cheryl Marambio, SCE participant Chile
My advice to other women would be, to give ourselves a chance, a second chance to keep walking, to keep going and to see that we can do it by ourselves, that we don't need anyone else to get ahead.
Carmen Areli Tomás Hernández, SCE participant, Puebla, Mexico
Trouble can come in everyone's life, but I would want to tell other women that just as we are working, similarly so can they.
Sabana Banu, SCE participant, Rajasthan
Because all women have the right to a second chance.
Being able to connect and having digital skills is very, very relevant for refugees and displaced women in Cameroon because it allows us to communicate and have other knowledge apart from what we may learn from word of mouth.
It actually opens our minds.

They give you the chance to believe in yourself, and say, yes, you can get ahead as a woman, and you can go very far.
Denisse Novoa, SCE participant
I was so happy, not only because of the money but because I was doing something, and I was learning something new.
Claudia, SCE participant
I am so, so grateful, I feel complete now, because my dream is to go to school.
So for this opportunity I want to say a big thank you. It’s a big blessing to me.
Precious Asongwe, SCE participant
I always gave time to my children. I never focused on myself.
The program has helped me, more than anything, to trust myself, to be able to move forward, to try to improve a little bit more.
To feel that one is capable, I think that is the fundamental learning priority of the program.
SCE participants, Chile
I was 16 years old, studying in class 8 when my parents got me married.
I was always thinking, if I had another chance at completing my education I would pass my matriculation exam. ...
I passed the exam and I was very happy since people used to tell me that this is not the time for studying ... They got their answer.
