Getting started for a better future
Do you have a job? To take care of yourself gives you self-confidence. Even more if your children can go to school thanks to your income. Therefore, we are committed to create work and income for vulnerable groups. We offer vocational training and job placement. A job gives young people perspective and self-esteem. They do not need to depend on others, but can take care of themselves and the people around them. One person who gets a job means a better life for on average 4 persons.

‘After my primary education I did not continue my education. Yet after a few years I wanted to study again. With a good job you can be independent. That is necessary, because my parents have died. One day, I hope to open my own fashion store.’
‘A few years ago I wanted to emigrate from my country, I had few opportunities on the labor market. After two trainings I opened my own hairdressing shop with donated equipment. By now it is running well. I stayed in my country and I am building my future.’
‘I have gained a lot of practical experience, amongst others with a lathe and a milling machine. That’s no book wisdom, I really acquired skills. Next to these practical skills I learned many other things, like a positive mindset and a professional work attitude. Besides that, we have practiced job interviews, so I have a lot of confidence in the future.’
