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.
We are happy to share our current newsletter with you.

This project is part of a three year project partnership between ASAP and Catholic Relief Services in Zimbabwe. During these times of tight budgets, the funding for the vocational skills training portion of this project had to be cut – yet it is such an essential and vital aspect of this project that will provide children in desperate circumstances with hope for the future. Please give youth in Zimbabwe skills that will last a life time by supporting this project.
