With this training these young people receive the opportunity to start a prosperous career and to help their family.

Long-Term Impact

As the young students build their professional career through the training, they can expect a long-term improvement in their situation and gain access to skilled, stable jobs. They can provide financial support to their family, which can help the younger siblings to receive a better education and the parents to improve their standard of living. Over time and with experience, the students will access better jobs and salaries, which will positively affect their own kids situation in the future.
