Celebrating the achievements of young people
Concern works with young people in a number of countries on vocational training programmes to help them earn a steady income.
In Somalia, 20 years of civil war have eroded both educational and employment opportunities. We have established training programmes to give young people a chance to learn a trade they can build a career upon. As many of the apprentices enrolled on the programmes will have been working to help support their families, Concern also provides families $50 each month to make up for the lost cash flow while their children study.
Meet some students in Mogadishu, Somalia, who have been taking part in training programmes thanks to the generosity of people like you.
Jamel Egal is a graduate of the Technical Vocational Education Training programme run by Concern. He now has a job as an electrician and says that the training he received changed the course of his life.
Zahara Hassan took part in a Technical Vocational Education and Training program in Mogadishu, which is supported by Concern Worldwide. She learnt fabric dyeing techniques as an apprentice in garment-making.
Farah Abdi Caynte is a trainee in cabinetry at the Technical Vocational Education Training program run by IIDA and Concern Worldwide. Farah lives in Halane slum and has never been to school. As part of the course he has been doing literacy and numeracy classes.
Thank you for your continued support, helping to empower young people and secure their futures.
