Vocational skills training are one of the activities originally included in the Out of School Adolescents project partnership between ASAP and Catholic Relief Services. Due to budget cuts, worthwhile and much need activities like this one had to be eliminated.
It is only because the ground work has been done through ongoing project activities that ASAP can offer this life changing training so cost effectively. Participants are eager and ready to learn. With your help, they will succeed! Please read about the project below.
This project moves along in spite of the cut in funding. ASAP is providing training in micro-finance for these youth and plans are still in place to train in various skills that can produce an income. This project goes along with placing girls back in school because everything is really linked. In the end ASAP's goal is to provide the basic life skills for these youth to survive in a very harsh environment.
Please consider a donation to help ASAP change lives.
The attached report highlights the need for Vocational Skills. This project partnership was funded through UNICEF and partners are working to achieve the National Plan of Action for Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Zimbabwe. Unfortunately, the funding originally earmarked for education and training were used for Cholera prevention in 2008. By donating today, you can help children gain the skills needed for a future full of hope and promise.
