The pandemic drives the youths' desire to learn new skills

Hello dear donors,

With the spirit of New Year, I hope many good things will come to all of us.

I would like to share with you some updates about the Vocational Training Centre in West Java that you have been generously supporting.

As we mentioned in our last report, the number of participants that enrolled have increased. Over the past two years, there have been ups and downs for youth in rural areas of Indonesia. As schools were closed so were the skills training centres like ours, even though these youth need skills to find employment. However, since we’ve been permitted to open, we are proud to let you know that there are 108 students who recently graduated. Among them, 49 students from English class, 38 students from Sewing class and 21 students from Computer class. 

“I graduated from high school last year and I could not continue my study at university as my family cannot afford to pay the tuition fee. At home, I help my mother with household errands. When the sewing classes at YUM reopened, I signed up straight away. I want to start my own online business selling wedding souvenirs. Therefore, learning how to sew properly is important for my future plan. I have finished my beginner class and will continue the intermediate class next term.” -Rahmah, 19 years old, Sewing class student. 

“I am in my 2nd year of high school. In the basic computer class, I learned about all the basic applications. Now, I am capable of using the Microsoft application and it really helps me with school work.  Next term, I will enroll in the intermediate computer class. I want to absorb all of the knowledge that I can get at the training centre. I also enrolled in English class. I want to have skills that I can use to find a job later on.” -Nadya, 17 years old, Computer and English class student.

Though we are still deep in the pandemic, nevertheless we shall continue our mission to help the youth in Cipanas, West Java.  Most of the young people in the area depend on their high school education to seek a job. Not many of them can continue to higher education because of the financial situation of their family.  With more and more high school dropouts, now is the time for these young people to equip themselves with employable skills!

We’re taking this opportunity to let you know that next month, from April 4-8, GlobalGiving will be matching all your donations up to $50 at 50% for the #LittleByLittle campaign. We hope you’ll join us during this campaign - or better yet, become a fundraiser like our friend Lily!
