Vocational Training in Sierra Leone

In subsistence farming economies where there are many barriers to education, gaining a skill such as hairdressing, tailoring or catering can guarantee an income and secure the future for a young person struggling to gain regular employment.

“I want to learn something that will help me take care of my children and myself”

Our vocational centre is in the community of Yam’s Farm, just outside Freetown, and currently teaches trades to 32 women, mostly young single mothers with little to no formal education. The two year course is their gateway to find employment, or set up their own business, and give them financial security.
