Providing Skills Training Training and Developing Highly Skilled Human Capital

Warm greetings,

Globally, countries are grappling with the challenges of unemployment.  Everywhere, people are looking for greater and more opportunities. I had the opportunity to hear about this first hand during my trip, earlier this year. The youths and young adults that I talked with were very interested in hearing about the possibilities of us expanding and providing more training options.  They wanted to know about additional opportunities. 

To this end, we are working towards expanding opportunities with a partner organization, Door of Hope.  Together we are constructing a new tailoring school building.  Construction is well under way and we have bought boards, sand and cement ready for the completion of the building. We hope to roof the building in the coming months.  A photo showing part of the building is provided.

One of the benefits of establishing training facilities is that is that this helps to develop a highly-skilled human capital with an appropriate mix of both technical and formative skills.  This is the key to building and transforming nations.  This is true development.

We look forward to sharing more with you in our next report.  Thanks for your on-going support that is helping to make this and more happen.

With excitement
Sylvester and the Develop Africa Team
