"My father encouraged me to join the vocational training centre to increase my experience in my profession. It enhanced my experience and ability in practising the craft and I was offered an on-the job training opportunity in a workshop close to home. I am now the manager of this workshop ” -Mohammed, a graduate of one of the vocational training centres run by Act for Peace’s project partner in Gaza.
Living without training and job opportunities can have a devastating impact on household income and the ability to feed, clothe and support a family. But vocational training programs can give trainees the experience, qualifications, and materials they need to get a job or start a small business. The skills they gain build their self-reliance and reduce their dependency on aid.
Your gift of $175 will provide a person with the vocational training they need to secure paid employment or establish a small business. It will help provide them with practical skills and experience so that they can support themselves and their families.
