Fifteen vulnerable youth benefited from TVET scholarships
Fifteen young people from vulnerable families have acquired hands on skills after spending the whole year in Technical Vocation Education Training (TVET) Centre.
The training was provided with support from Benimpuhwe Organisation through Rungano-Ndota Program.
The graduation, which took place in October 2019, generated nine of the trainees graduating from construction, five in culinary art while one graduated from carpentry.
Having come from poor families, all the beneficiaries shared a common story. They have dropped out of formal schools and had no jobs.
However, with the acquired hands on skills, they are optimistic their life is going to change from worse to better as plenty opportunities are at their disposal with a variety of choices.
Pierrine is one of graduates who graduated from canary art. She is optimistic that she would use the skills she has acquired either to create own job or easily get one from an employee.
“Give a man fish, he will eat today, but teach a man to fish and he will eat forever” she said referring to the skills they have acquired.
There is high rate of unemployment and under employment in Rwanda and hence the need for different partners such as Benimpuhwe Organization to join the battle and help train more young people for them to create jobs.
