Summary

This project has two main objectives: create decent jobs for homeless people who will manufacture shelter coats for the winter and on the other hand produce and deliver them for others living in the streets. We will train our program beneficiaries in the arts and crafts of sewing so that they can acquire the skills that will guarantee a decent job. At the same time, we will provide other homeless with the production of coats that turn into sleeping bags for the cold winter nights.

Challenge

There are 7251 homeless in Buenos Aires City, according to the last census from Censo Popular de Personas en Situacion de Calle (CPPSC). For them getting a job is not as easy as drafting a resume. Homeless people have to face 5 main challenges when trying to get a job: Do not have email or phone to be contacted, Hygiene and clothing, Money to travel, Training to gain self-confidence and face interviews, a place to sleep when getting a job and access to job opportunities.

Solution

We provide manufacturing skills producing CAMPS, coaching and access to job interviews thanks to a methodology in which HR professionals look for job opportunities in a one-to-one strategy for homeless people. When they get interviews, we offer all the support needed so they can attend: Clean clothes, a place to get a shower, the money they need to get there, a place where they can leave their things during the interview. If they get a job, we help them to find and a furnished place to live.

Long-Term Impact

This project will train 100 people to get off the streets by learning manufacturing skills and giving them the needed support to get a job. This will encourage other homeless people that today are demotivated and will be able to see that leaving the streets is possible if you ask for help and work as part of a community.
