Maria’s Story

Maria with certificate

I heard about the Cardinal Hume Centre by word of mouth. My friend talked to me about it.
Now my life is so different thanks to all the support and advice I have found at the Cardinal Hume Centre.I have learnt to speak English, have got my resident permit and actually have a mentor and also I am doing voluntary work.

When I came to the Centre I couldn’t understand or speak any English. I was very dependent on people and this situation made me feel depressed, afraid, insecure. So I was very happy when I got a place to learn English.

I was able to use the creche while I attended the English class as I have a child. The creche is a wonderful service.

I am very grateful to the Cardinal Hume Centre.

Thank you.

Maria Ladino
