Skills Development


Our skills development programs have proven to be extremely popular amongst the young adults we serve. We offer classes in sewing, carpentry, computers, and basic home maintenance (plumbing, tiling, painting, etc.). These programs build confidence and give learners a feeling of pride and usefulness, knowing they are equipped to do various repairs and maintenance at home, and can manufacture and repair clothes for themselves and their relatives. The training is not gender-specific; boys can learn to sew, and girls can learn carpentry if they so wish. We are currently looking to to expand into entrepreneurial skills training for the older members of our support groups to encourage and enable them to start small businesses.
