We are working with local communities to eliminate gender disparities and vulnerable situations in education and to promote sustainable lifestyles.
EMPOWERING RURAL COMMUNITIES
Our plans and goals for this programme
As we continue to work towards a sustainable goal in advancing education, we seek to empower communities by providing them with the knowlegde, skills and resources they will need to lift themselves out of poverty.
Under this sub-programme, we will work with communities;
in rural areas to sensitise and provide the knowlege and know-how on issues such as child education, need for education, vocational training.
to support them to gain relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship so that they can afford the costs of educating their children.
Most parents want to work to earn a living and be able to afford the cost of their children education. With a good support system in place and training, parents could be financially independent and be able to look after their children and fulfil their basic needs.
Our action plan
We plan to launch this sub-programme in December 2020.
We will organise workshops and seminars that will sensitise and empower communities to educate their children, develop new vocational skills, etc with a purpose of improving their lifestyles.
