Donations in Action – Employment Training, Timor-Leste
Children, families and communities in East Timor have suffered greatly in recent history. Houses, livelihoods, public facilities and schools were destroyed in the 2006 Independence Crisis but the gift of Employment Training has helped youths rebuild their lives.
Justino was unskilled, entrenched in poverty and as the eldest son, responsible for the wellbeing of his family. Finding an ongoing income in the country’s capital was incredibly difficult due to limited opportunities and intense competition. There was not much hope for the future.
Thanks to Donations with a Difference supporters, ChildFund was able to offer Justino the opportunity to train as a mechanic. He studied hard, was awarded ‘Best qualified Graduate’ in the training centre and is now employed as a professional mechanic in a workshop. He has a regular income and gave thanks to ChildFund for offering him this gift.
