Thanks to your support, in 2010 the ASAP team provided hands-on skills training for 8 children in dressmaking, 18 in hairdressing and 21 in carpentry during November and December. Because of your donation, these 37 children were not turned away; in total ASAP in Zimbabwe provided vocational training for 446 youth through a 3 year project funded by Catholic Relief Services. 162 children attended training in dressmaking, 218 in hairdressing and 66 attended carpentry training.
In 2011, now that the Catholic Relief Services funding is finished, Causemore Samanga reports that the continuing demand for hands-on skill training is very high and girls eager to learn sewing even bring their own materials in order to be able to be considered for the training. Your support and the support of Global Giving is now the primary source of support and is greatly appreciated so these enthusiastic girls will gain the skills needed to live productive lives and become self-supporting. Thank you again.
