Nanise commences her driving lessons thanks to WomenCAN Australia! 
Pictured here with Driving Instructor, Gerry, Nanise is being supported with 10 driving lessons, funded by WomenCAN Australia, to obtain her Licence as part of our Driving to Employment Program. 
Originally from Fiji and living in Shepparton, Nanise gained employment as a PCA through WomenCAN Australia in Benalla, 40 minutes drive from her home.  With no licence, we supported Nanise to move to Benalla, and she has now taken the next step towards achieving independence. 
Nanise will use the lessons over the next few months to gain confidence and sit her test once she feels ready with the support of Gerry's All Terrain Driving School. 
We are so proud of you Nanise, good luck!

"I think I was always meant to work in aged care.  I’ve always been a caring compassionate person.”
Beth completed an aged care traineeship with the support of WomenCAN Australia and is now working as a qualified PCW at Uniting AgeWell in Bendigo.
“It’s good to have finished, it’s good to have made it the whole way through.  There were some times there where it was challenging, it was tough.  But between WomenCAN Australia, AI Group and all the girls that I was doing my traineeship with, I think that without all that support, it would have been very, very hard to have gotten through it.”

Rong's (middle) life took a pivotal turn, intersecting with the compassionate efforts of Brotherhood of St Lawrence member Sophie (left) and the support of WomenCAN Australia.
As a sole parent juggling a mortgage and facing a demanding commute from Echuca to Shepparton, Rong's journey was filled with challenges.
Through the support and advocacy of Simone (right) from WomenCAN Australia Peer Support team, Rong now has a permanent position at Shepparton Villages, marking a new chapter in her career and personal life
“This employment will have a significant impact, not only on Rong but also on her father and son. Rong is already planning to study in her free time. The holistic impact on the family unit will be life-changing for all,” Sophie explained.
