Skills for Productivity
Decreasing Youth Unemployment
Most developing countries are plagued by high rates of youth unemployment.
The major deterrent to employment is a lack of skill and our solution has been vocational skills training has been one of the chief means of providing young people with the necessary skills.
Our training happens outside schools through the use of auxiliary institutions, with special vocational institutes where endeavors are closely meshed with on-the-job training to match the actual manpower requirements is matched with skills
We tailor courses towards studying relevant local conditions and providing reinforcement in the form of continued support, follow-ups, and cooperative training.
We put emphasis on practical experiences and provide our students with a much greater spectrum of the skills being taught.
We adopted vocational training to promote self-employment and help vulnerable youth seek better opportunities and worked with researchers to evaluate how the program affects the development and improvements on the well-being of the youth.
The results indicated increased economic development and improved well-being of youth. The results also indicated that there is an increased likelihood of individuals starting their own businesses. The youth also invested more time on their skills development.
Our efforts before the recent war showed an increase in wages and a higher likelihood of starting their own businesses.

How It Works
1. The design of relevant curricula:
Our relevant vocational education curricula imply that these programs will mesh the skills with the employment needs of local communities.
With additional relevance, we modify to include courses to help graduates establish and manage their own businesses.
2. The provision of a greater spectrum of vocational courses:
We widen the curricula to reflect a cluster concept of exploration and instruction in groups of related occupations, rather than isolated skill, for instance, welding and painting are taught within the same unit to make graduates more resourceful.
3. The provision of opportunities for work experience:
For our graduates of vocational programs to succeed in the labor market, we expose them more frequently to the discipline and reality of the workplace. Opportunities for work experience takes place in the form of school-supervised cooperative experiences in local businesses, industries, and agriculture. When successful, cooperative education programs often provide a substantial number of students with full-time positions (after graduation) with their co-op employers.
Economic Growth and Development
From carpentry to agriculture to automobile assembly, training centers are changing lives. Education and training for productive employment is an important tool for economic growth and development.
Technical and Vocational Education and Trainings (TVET)—an aspect of the educational process—is a tool for productivity enhancement towards achieving economic growth. They focus on practical applications of skills learned and are intended to prepare trainees to become effective professionals in a specific vocation. It also equips trainees with a broad range of knowledge, skills, and attitudes that are indispensable for meaningful participation in work and life.
As developing countries aspire to join the ranks of developed countries, the need for a skilled workforce becomes even more necessary. These countries need a skilled labor force to construct and maintain roads, buildings, railways, and bridges.
Training individuals to be technically skilled mechanics, engineers, shoemakers, and garment makers, among other professions increases a country’s competitiveness globally. Individuals who acquire TVET training in jewelry making, auto and refrigerator repairs, electronic repairs, etc., often set up their own businesses, and enroll new entrants for training.
Skilled workers enhance the quality and efficiency of product development, production, and maintenance, and they supervise and train workers with lesser skills. Countries with well-established TVET systems tend to enjoy lower youth unemployment.
This is because the orientation of TVET coupled with the acquisition of employability skills allow it to address issues such as skills mismatch that has impeded smooth school-to-work transitions for many young people. Lower youth unemployment is key to improving lives and building stronger communities necessary for growth.
We are addressing the needs of the informal economy by providing an education system that creates opportunities in the said sector.
Utilizing Africa’s growing youth population comes with developing their technical and vocational skills in order to respond to the different types of industry needs.
Most fundamental to this is about changing the mindset of the vocational training sector to meet the increasing demands of the global labor market.
Our aim is to provide skills by training them in professional schools and job training workshops to pursue industrial and commercial occupations
We train and produce graduates with skills that can respond to the needs of a highly competitive and dynamic market and industry.
The training revolves around equipping the youth with skills required to enter the workforce and to connect them to high-level demanding jobs.
The training also focuses its attention on underprivileged neighborhoods in the refugee camps, rural areas, and the slums.
Your support provides opportunities for vulnerable women and young people in war zones and other vulnerable victims of injustice to access clean water as well as hygiene and sanitation programs.
