Primary Problem

Lack of Vocational training services has the devastating potential to create a severe of economic impacts. Young people have straggled with life and they need a hand that can support them through vocational training that can equip them with constructive Knowledge and reliable Skills. It is noticed that 60% of younge people in their productive years, lack direction which has contributed greatly in affecting the development and economic out-put of the country. In Cameroon, youths contribute 50% to the economy of the country.

 

Accessing young people with practical vocational trainings and thus to the job market; In Cameroon, the projects take place not close to the rightful locations/people. This means that over 45% of young people are forced to leave their social and cultural environment, which thus makes training and education even more difficult.  In the countryside, there is a heavy emphasis on various programs for the adults than youth manual vocations. The skills are being taught to meet country’s demands.

How it happens:

  1. Providing specialized professional knowledge and skills to vulnerable youths (especially young girls) in sectors such as; renewable energy, agribusiness, hair dressing, carpentry, masonry, tailoring and computer studies, shoe mending etc by 2025.
  2. Improving school infrastructure of technical schools in rural and poor urban communities through the construction of classrooms, rehabilitation and equipping of dilapidated structures and the construction of modern toilet blocks and stores
  3. Providing scholarships to underprivileged children via our VET project (whom without these scholarships will stay at home) at the nursery, primary and secondary education levels.
  4. promoting free, equal access to quality education for all children – from early learning to secondary education. We work with children, their families, communities, wider society and governments, and advocate at both local and international levels, so that all children are able to get an education.
  5. Inculcating values of environmental management in pupils and students through practical training on organic farming and tree planting techniques and setting up school environment Programs.
  6. Improving water and hygiene situations in schools by providing potable water to schools, construction of toilet blocks with hand washing facilities and provision of drinking pails to schools.P

Objective:
