People in poverty long for the opportunity to create a better life for themselves and their families.
Your gift could provide specialised training for in-demand careers to give an ambitious young person a real chance for the brighter future they’re working toward. Young people receive training as mechanics, carpenters, tailors, cabinet makers, welders, masons and more. When it comes to becoming self-reliant, this is the gift of a lifetime!
How this gift helps
Comprehensive youth training programs in Timor-Leste enable young people to access the skills required for sustainable employment. Before joining the training program, eighteen-year-old Imaculada helped her parents with cleaning jobs at home. When she heard about the youth training program from a school friend, she jumped at the opportunity to study agriculture. “Life is good, but we young people need to make efforts to make it better,” she says. Your gift will help young people to gain access to vocational skills specific to their communities and give them an opportunity to sustain themselves and their families economically.
