(What I Learned At Home)
Through the WILAH Project, single mothers and women from underserved communities learn a myriad of home repair skills that help them maintain their largest financial investment: their home. Additionally, the project provides a means of building self-confidence that helps participants become more productive, self-sufficient citizens.
In the first phase of the program, instructors teach selected women to use household tools (i.e. hammers, saws, power drills, etc.) and provide the opportunity to apply the learned skills in a simulated at home repair setting.
In the second phase, motivational speakers and counselors teach positive life principles and challenge, motivate and inspire the women through tool/life parallels.
