Despite the adversities that they encounter on their journey to the US, many refugees are eager to contribute positively to their new society. For this reason, Nile Sisters Development Initiative developed the Back-to-Back (B2B) Skill Development program. Since its inception in 2012, B2B has assisted nearly 300 refugees and other economically disadvantaged populations.
Promoting viable opportunities for self-sufficiency is a value that Nile Sisters is proud to share with the Walter J. and Betty C. Zable Foundation, whose generous grant will continue to enable the delivery of skills training services to refugees and immigrants in the San Diego region. Employment training includes a certified nursing assistant (CNA) program, behind-the-wheel driver’s license training, and professional development assistance for members of Nile Sisters priority populations.
Nile Sisters gratefully acknowledges the financial commitment that the Walter J. and Betty C. Zable Foundation has made to the San Diego region.
Back-to-Back success stories appear in the Nile Sisters employment facilitation news archives.
