A native of Guinea, Mafering is a Renaissance participant and is being trained as a sales clerk–sorter–cashier. She had studied economics and worked in business in Guinea. "When I arrived, I didn't feel ready to go back to school. I looked for work for a while, but I didn't have the necessary local work experience. Renaissance helps everyone, not only new arrivals. I'll be more sure of myself when I have to look for work, because I'll have the work experience I was missing." Mafering wants to work in customer service in a store or a bank once she finishes her Renaissance training.
Do good with your goods!
When you give your used articles in a Renaissance Donation Bin, Centre or Store, you’re making much more than a pure ecological gesture: you’re helping a lot of people. Our organization offers hundreds of citizens the opportunity to reintegrate the workforce via our socioprofessionnal programs. So when you’re going for the Big Clean-Up plan, make it a great plan: and give your stuff to Renaissance.
