Skills Training for War-Affected Adolescent Boys Begins!

Thank you so much for helping to fund ChildVoice’s vocational training programs for Boko Haram victims and other war-affected youth in Nigeria. We’re now less than $3,000 away from reaching our funding goal!

ChildVoice now has over 200 adolescent girls enrolled in programs at the Malkohi internally displaced persons (IDP) camp. Current training sessions for girls include perfume making and salon (hairdressing). We completed training sessions in handbag making at the end of 2020. Some students are now making handbags on their own.

ChildVoice staff also led THRIVE training sessions in Mubi earlier this year. THRIVE is ChildVoice’s program that teaches girls in refugee settlements how to sew and use reusable menstrual pad kits, and educates them about women's health and emotional wellness.

We’re also excited to announce that ChildVoice is now offering skills training sessions to adolescent boys living in the Malkohi IDP camp! Many of these boys are victims of Boko Haram and have lost their homes and family members. Currently, boys in our new programs are enjoying basic training in electrical work. Some of the boys have expressed a real interest in getting the training they need to become electricians!

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all of our training sessions continue to be limited in size for the time being. We hope to see skills training sessions increase in size and number as the pandemic fades.

ChildVoice’s vocational training and associated programs are made possible only by the support of donors like you who care about the lives of vulnerable, war-traumatized youth. With the pandemic continuing to impact everyday life for many of us, we thank you for your ongoing support. Together, we can make change happen!
