Our latest addition to our portfolio of programmes specialises in delivering Technical and Vocational Education and Training to disadvantaged youths who, for a myriad of reasons, have missed out on education. In order to make it accessible for as many as possible, the project began with basic literacy and numeracy skills training interwoven with exploring societal issues and financial literacy. Upon completion, they will progress to the next stage of our programme and utilise their newly acquired skills to create sustainable businesses that will change their lives for the better.
In partnership with an external loan provider, the youths will be encouraged to generate profitable business ideas and will receive support with bringing these ideas into fruition. Moreover, they will be supported with gaining meaningful work placements and internships as an alternative route to employment. One of our key objectives is the promotion of peace building and conflict resolution, this project enables young people vulnerable to conflict to see that there are alternative paths, that they are capable of taking them and that they have a right to a quality education.
We will be delivering ‘Inspiring Somaliland and Central and South Somalia Youth through skills training and creation of employment opportunities’ in partnership with the organisations below.
