Real World Skills

When someone is taught a vocational skill, it can never be taken from them. It's a real world skill that they take with them whereever the may go. When the formal unemployment rate is 90%, any kind of skill can be the difference between survival and not.  Whether it's sewing, carpentry, hairdressing, raising fowl or raising rabbits, that little bit of extra knowledge sets these girls apart from the rest.

Once we have raised the last $2100, ASAP plans to train a group of about 20 young girls. There is no shortage of requests. It's only the funds that are needed to implement the training program. Your support through Global Giving is now the primary source of support and is greatly appreciated so these enthusiastic girls can gain the skills needed to live productive lives and become self-supporting. Thank you again.
