Training centers are important for the future
In order to enable children and young people to acquire practical skills and abilities and thus earn a living during and after school, Zimbabwe needs modern training locations.
There is no vocational training system in Zimbabwe as we know it. After finishing school students can continue to attend either university or college, depending on their educational attainment. In both cases, however, this involves substantial fees, which the vast majority of the population cannot afford to pay. As a result, most children and young people are failing to learn practical skills in order to earn a living from later employment or self-employment which would enable them to provide for themselves and their families. The government has therefore initiated a low-threshold training programme, called “Hexco”, for pupils to be trained in practical skills in addition to attending secondary school. However, as many of the secondary schools do not have the resources and teaching staff to provide this programme, it is in most cases falling by the wayside. Zimbabwe Advivia therefore wants to focus more on the implementation of training courses in the future.
Useful areas of training programs include craft content, among others:
- in construction
- in textile processing
- in agriculture and animal husbandry.
OVER TIME IT HAS BECOME CLEAR THAT THIS PROJECT NEEDS A NEW STRUCTURE. AT ANOTHER LEVEL, WORK IS WORKING ON THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE TRAINING CENTER. ADVIVIA GGMBH IS CURRENTLY FOLLOWING THE DEVELOPMENT WITHOUT COLLECTING ANY FURTHER DONATIONS. THERE WILL BE NEW INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROJECT IN APPLICABLE TIME.
