#1 Ahmadzai: A Heartfelt Thank You to BC Alliance for Manufacturing

A partnership between Northwest Skills Institute & BC Alliance for Manufacturing

Manal ClientWith respect to BC Alliance's team for manufacturing, I would like to thank and appreciate all your kind efforts for building our career.

Shortly, when I was in my home country, I faced lots of security threats and lack of job. Then when I came to Canada, most refugees pointed me some challenges and they said there is job difficulty.

Due to I was nervous and thinking how to find a satisfy and good job. Then suddenly I saw the announcement of MOSAIC and BC Alliance for Manufacturing showing their program for support of refugees and to help them how to find a job and guiding them about new cultures, then I applied.

In the same time, some other people who came earlier to Canada said no benefit from such trainings, instead they mentioned I must leave the training they encouraged me to start work in restaurants but I ignored their suggestion I continued with BC Alliance for Manufacturing.

"BC Alliance for Manufacturing they completely changed my life"

I learned a lot from their good environment and good team. They offered me and as because of them I have a well job, due to thank all the respected team especially Mr. Daniel Marc Jones, Mrs. Manal and Mr. Cormac.

Finally as per my experience I kindly request the valued team to continue the same courses for other people and inform me for similar courses and events.

Thank you Ahmadzai
