Success Stories

"Vimenti brought many wonderful things to my life"

"Thanks to Vimenti, I see a significant change in my children’s academic progress. Now, we spend more time together as a family and I feel empowered with the necessary skills to have a more effective communication with them. Mornings are also easier and more productive as a mom since I have the chance to have breakfast with my daughter at Vimenti School. The employment program and workshops at Vimenti helped me to find a job and, thereafter, buy a car. These changes in my life have brought other changes, like making happen a family dream of moving from a small apartment to a house with a nice patio. We all have goals and Vimenti pushed me forward to achieve some of them and to continue working hard and dreaming knowing that anything is possible."
