Towa takes initiative to help job seekers

It is indeed a struggle securing a job – any job, as long as it puts food on the table.

Year after year, institutions pour more fresh graduates into the pool of job seekers and the demand increases with the desperation to be the eligible one.

But what happens if you don’t succeed for a job in your field? You either settle for a job outside your field of expertise, you start up your own business or you give up altogether.

A young man from Kerowagi, Chimbu Province, has taken the responsibility on himself, to assist job seekers.
