Women’s empowerment at new ap

Laja March Thought Leader

I am originally from South Sudan, but I grew up in Tanzania. I’ve worked at New American Pathways for 4 years and currently I work as a Family Advocate. A large part of my job is to provide support and advocacy for individuals and families. We offer a variety of assistance including emotional support, connecting clients to helpful resources, and promoting education and awareness about healthy relationships to the community.

I work in a broader department called the Family Empowerment Program that offers a multitude of services to women and their families. We assist women with gaining access to education, financial literacy training, job opportunities, and other resources. Through our department, women are able to receive the resources and support they need to improve their lives and the lives of their families.

The best part of my job is the opportunity to support and make a positive impact on the lives of women and their families. I love getting the opportunity to work with such a diverse population and learning about different cultures. As a woman and a mother, I take pride in making a difference in other women’s lives.
