One Step At a Time Toward the Bright Future
Areumddeul(Beautiful Garden) is a shelter for single mothers who find it difficult to raise their children by themselves. They can restore their mental and emotional stability and get prepared for an independent life through various programs including job training. They can raise their children without worries for the basic essentials at the shelter. But, independence is never easy to get for the single mothers despite getting sufficient aids at the shelter. It is hard to get pregnant unexpectedly and give childbirth after being rejected by the babies father and her family. It is even harder to get job training and an actual job as well as achieving independence while raising their children alone. That is why Miyeon (an assumed name) is so special. She has built a foundation for independence one step at a time over the two years she has been of the shelter.
