VOCATIONAL TRAINING Programmes

>

Reach The Poor (REP) is scaling up a high lasting impact initiative of tackling impoverished poverty among the youth and elder children who drop out of school early. With the formation of vocational training center that helps the unemployed youth, adolescent girls, young mothers and Orphaned and Vulnerable Children (OVCs) get basic life skills in carpentry, hair dressing and tailoring to open up the mind-set concerning new ways of self-reliance. We teach the community how to overcome poverty through survival skills for those children who understand the real grass root problems of poverty and how to eradicate it through using hand and electrical tools. This is helping the community to exploit their full potential of becoming independent valued members of the society to assume sustainable improved quality lives.

APPROACH
Your support towards this project will help thousands of unemployed youth, young mothers, school dropout children, widows and OVCs to get life skills for self employment as well as creating jobs for the rest of the youth.

  • Carryout mass mobilization and sensitization in the communities, and later on enroll the beneficiaries for training lessons which mainly focus on practical hand-on training
  • Secure training tools and funds to sustain the program to benefit more interested groups
  • We offer certificates to the graduated trainees who have passed through our hands
  • We train students in business plan designing that assists them secure small loans to start their own sustainable enterprises that provide self employment and earn income from the contracts given to them through our network with local and regional schools and wedding party organizers. So we try our best to connect our former students at our vocational training center to the market opportunities available locally to get their businesses get going and grow faster.
  • We continue to carryout field follow ups of our former students and assess them how they are doing, draw new strategies to help them meet their new targets and offer mentorship support to favorably compete with the rest of the community.

This is helping to create a chain of job creators and bread winners for poor families, and it’s means of fighting poverty in our societies. More funds and in kind donations in form small loans and grants from business angels, investors, and volunteer support and trust foundations is much needed. Your support will see thousands of beneficiaries get life skills and employed for self-reliance.
