Behind the smiles I saw the pride of doing something well

Our apprenticeship program is up and running and giving the chance of a lifetime to young people who face the bleak future of more of the same poverty they were born into. It gives them the opportunity to learn a trade from a master and get on track for a vocation that delivers dignity and security. We now have apprenticeships in engine mechanics, tailoring, soap-making, beekeeping, electricity, welding, and cabinetry. The beauty of an apprenticeship is that it not only transfers skill knowledge from master to apprentice but also helps grow the master’s business and create more jobs.  During the apprenticeship period (mostly one year), we monitor the apprentices’ performance and help the masters expand their business.  $185 will provide a one-year apprenticeship that will launch a life and strengthen a rural community. That’s amazing value for a life-changer.  Go to our donate page if you want to help.
