Riza Gol’ brief biography:
I am a housewife and was always at home, my father forced me to marry at early age. My husband was so poor and we had a hard life with our four children. My husband’s salary was not enough for us, so he had to leave us towards Iran to work. Unfortunately, I did not have any skill. As I got married at early age, I could not go to school and there was no job available for me.
Fortunately, with knowing about Help’s vocational training courses and registering my name in food process class of Ansari center, my life has changed. I could learn a skill in Ansari vocational training center and enter socio-economic life. After starting to work, I could support my family financially and have a better life.
