Vocational Training

For youngsters who already have decent reading and writing skills, we offer a 6-month handicrafts programme. Beginners are taught at the compound of Education Centre Vialisa/Korail, and more advanced students will move to Benglish Crafts.

For youngsters who aren’t interested in our tailoring or embroidery programme we look for a fitting training programme elsewhere, usually outside of the slum. This is made possible in cooperation with other NGOs, training centres and employers. In the past years we have found training opportunities with a rattan furniture manufacturer, a mirror manufacturer, and a computer/copy shop, among other things. These external vocational trainings often lead to permanent employment.
