Vocational Training

Finishing school is one thing but getting a job is an entirely different matter.  One way to help young school leavers as well as those who are unemployed is to give them training in a skill that is needed in the area.

Sewing is our most recent project. We enrolled 4 adults (2 women and 2 men) in sewing training.  They received four months of intensive training, at the end of which we offered them an interest-free loan to buy their own machine. They were trained on manual, pedal-powered machines, allowing them to be unaffected by the frequent power cuts, and enabling them to set up their business on the street to attract passing trade.  We'd like to thank the Charities Advisory Trust for sponsoring the women's training.

This gentleman operates his sewing business from outside his home.  He and his wife have 5 children between the ages of 7 and 18.  He gets his work from passing trade because he lives in the middle of a very busy small neighbourhood. 

Some of Our Other Projects 

These young men now have a carpentry skill that they can take back to their villages and help support their families.

The barbers and hairdressers that we sponsored provide a valuable service to the community.
