South Asia Vocational Training: Empowering the Poor
About the project
Poverty forces people into dependency. With no education and no skills to offer, the poor and underprivileged are at the mercy of their superiors. Unskilled labourers live from day to day, often not knowing where tomorrow's wages will come from and whether the money will be sufficient to feed their families. This insecurity frequently directs their steps to money-lenders, and they fall into ever deeper dependency, ending in helpless misery and hopeless despair.
Your gift towards Vocational Training will contribute to long-term solutions and empower the helpless to be self-reliant and act on their own. Vocational Training serves the poorest and most oppressed and enables them to earn a living and support their families by teaching them a useful trade. Many of these centers have already been started successfully in all South Asian countries; most are now self-supporting.
In small centers of 5 to 30 students, people are trained in tailoring and handicrafts, typewriting and computer skills, carpentry, homestead gardening, and other locally relevant and marketable skills. Local participation is given through affordable fees, and often rent and salaries are covered by local sources. Self-support can be reached within 2 to 4 years. This ministry concentrates mainly on empowering women.
tailoring/handicrafts: $2,450 per year for 10–20 students (self-support after 1 year)
$150 x 5 (manual machines) + $350 x 2 (electric machines) + $1,000 (running expenses for 12 months)
carpentry: $7,200 per half-year for 6 students (self-support after 6 months)
$3,000 (machines, one-time investment) + $4,200 (running expenses for 6 months)
