Vocational Skills Training for Unemployed Youth

Supported by TSDI, our Nigeria affiliate SI4DEV provided vocational skill training on bead-making, catering, cosmetology, wire works, and leather works to 50 unemployed youths in Jos, Plateau State.

Project design and objective were relevant in Plateau State, Nigeria, youth and teenagers are facing the most hardships and lack of belongingness within the society. In Bulbula Community constitute a big chunk of the population, yet they remain the most subjugated and marginalized.

The difficult circumstances that they face are limited opportunities for education and skills training, viable employment, health, and social services, and because of a growing incidence of substance abuse and juvenile delinquency is deteriorating the chance of the community’s quest for achieving the status of a developed community. Their imagination, ideals, considerable energies, and vision are essential for the continuing development of the societies in which they live.

The project was effective as it trained 50 unemployed youths on bead-making, computer literacy, leather works, wire works, and cosmetology. Participants were divided into separate groups based on their area of interest, most participants started businesses with skills learned.

Resources were used efficiently, as items were bought at the cheapest price with high quality. The project is sustainable as those trained will train others in the community.
