Skills training create future opportunities!

In addition to our job training projects that give people the opportunity to learn sewing, cooking, beading and furniture making skills we have included skills training in computers and poultry husbandry.

Having skills in basic computing is a huge advantage when applying for almost any job in this modern world. Many of our scholarship students graduating from high school, vocational courses and university have had limited access to computers which greatly affects their proficiency in using basic programs such as word, excel, publisher and other tools. Graduating students often do not have the skills to prepare a simple resume which results in them often being overlooked when applying for jobs. Hand to Hand Foundation recently began a computer training course for students, workers and even children every Saturday and Sunday. Some students have taken an interest in graphics and training for them is becoming available.

The foundation purchased 5 computers and 3 teachers are giving of their time every weekend. One of the computer teachers is a student in a local vocational skills program and he is already showing students how to make simple software and hardware repairs. The program has been operational for 3 months and due huge interest it will continue for a long time. 

Our participants in the furniture making program have recently put their hands and skills to build a chicken coop at our housing estate. They have built the chicken feeders and water spouts from simple PVC piping using diagrams from the internet to direct them. They are now caring for the chickens and teaching children to do the same. These participants are now skilled to build more chicken coops for paying customers.
