Give rural youths a better future

Rural youths migrate to larger cities to look for jobs. But they do not have the skill sets such as knowledge in using a computer, speaking in English and acquiring soft skills such as teamwork, good communication, problem-solving and conflict management. Most schools and homes in rural areas do not have government electricity and they rely on batteries and inverters to generate electricity. The lack of electricity results in rural youths being illiterate in the use of computers which prevent them from taking many white collar jobs. By providing them with relevant skills, we empower these youths to get better-paying jobs and the start of a better future.
Our TJSSS course  (Training Job Skills for the Service Sector) equips young school leavers with the needed skills to get a white-collar job. TJSSS provides a 3-months and a 7-months residential training. As most students live far away from the training centre, we have to provide accommodation and meals.
