“We can work for ourselves now!” new auto care entrepreneur testifies

Posted: Tuesday, December 15, 2020. 3:22 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: The spokesperson for the blooming St. Martin’s One Stop Auto Care says the opportunity provided by the Empowering Communities to Empower Themselves initiative by the US Embassy in Belize; LOVE Foundation, and Kolbe Foundation is a new beginning for the company’s potential.

Albert Clother, receiving the torch metaphorically from the Yarborough life skills group, said it had always been a dream to own and run a mechanic shop.

Working elsewhere meant that the spoils were not theirs, said Clother, also known as Bertie; this shop is their own. Borrowing the old aphorism of giving a man a fish versus teaching him to fish, Clother said the project ensures many days of ‘eating’ from here on out.

Someone else noted that “there is no Plan B; this is our Plan A to Z.” The community is already behind them in support.

Clother was one of 12 graduates from the program which included former gang members who are now on a path to professional development.

The new auto care shop is one of the establishments which bore fruit in the neighborhood.
