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.
