WOW — dealing with the car
The Department of Youth and Women’s Affairs (DYWA) is hosting a Women On Wheels (WOW) training project that is being conducted in Utulei by ASCO Motors Toyota.
The project, which is in its third week, teaches women drivers how to diagnose and deal with basic car problems such as how to jump or look for loose cables on a battery, how to charge a battery, change tires, check tire pressure, and keep track of fluids such as oil, water and transmission fluid.
The eight-week class is every Wednesday and Friday in Utulei in front of the Social Services building from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. So far this year, the DYWA has offered several programs aimed at training not only women and youth, but also males who are interested in learning basic skills such as sewing, cooking, financial management and computer training.
Samoa News spoke with some of the participants with one saying that she was so glad to be part of this class, because before the class she said she had no idea how to fix any problems if her car broke down. Said another, “I learned so much in this class. Now if I have a problem, I will know how to diagnose it and find out if it is a real big problem or a small one that I can fix myself.”
