Life Skills Training program

Everyday People: Rev. Kari Avuru

As the pastor to the church and member of the community, I am very grateful when the women of our community engage in programs that take them from their daily norms to learning skills that upgrade their lives for the better.

A recent program held in our village that saw 17 women and 3 young men participate in learning new skillsets has taken these individuals from being unskilled to skilled in a space of two weeks and their progress was evident in the things they created from the training.

New Beginnings For Young Men

The mission’s 14-week Life Skills Training program has proven to not be a straight forward approach for many of the young men coming from varying backgrounds; many struggling with a sense of belonging and leaving behind a life of bad habits and decisions.
