From July 2018, the NGO FAITH through its education and social components has launched a massive recruitment of young people out of school or in academic difficulty. These young people who are once unemployed and losing their bearings are collected in training centres where they are trained in one or more activities according to their will and profile.
The following training courses are available to young people are:
– Maintenance training and IT secretariat
– Training in vegetable production
– Training in animal production
– Training in fish farming
– Computer training with computer skills in computer graphics
– Training in audiovisual production and editing
– Training in the evening for free application for exams
These training modules are given in one year, 6 months of theory in accelerated course and 6 months of intense practice in the field. Civic and moral classes will also be administered to re-educate these young people. These trained people will be coached to facilitate their socio-professional integration; the most deserving will receive a grant to facilitate self-employment.
Youth is and remains the bedrock of any nation. The development of every nation is therefore always linked to the state of its youth. An educated, patriotic and hard-working youth is a guarantee of a prosperous nation.
However, the observation in our developing states is that young people are increasingly being left behind. She herself, sometimes sacrificed or instrumentalized. It is sometimes under-trained or unemployed and is used by our policies for propagandistic or insurrectionary purposes.
Very few young people from countries south of the Sahara manage to complete their schooling either because of lack of resources or because of repetitive failures. Not to mention that even those who go to the end end find themselves unemployed because of the mismatch between the trainings taken and the job market. Every man has potential and is entitled to a second chance. Academic failures must not be if arrangements are made, a factor of despair and exodus from our able-bodied arms.
But often forgotten, in their quest for well-being, we are increasingly witnessing the mass immigration of young people from our African states to developed countries thinking that further, the grass is greener.
We are therefore seeing serious consequences given all the risks that these young people take in their adventure. These risks have their name: shipwreck on the high seas, death for lack of adaptation to the climate, slavery to name but a few; far from criticizing or judging this youth, it is urgent to offer them other alternatives.
That is why we are launching this project which will not only re-educate our young people with civic and moral values but will also provide them with liberal training (agropastoral, computer science and network).
After their training, we will coach these young people by facilitating their socio-professional integration in local businesses through our pleas to these partners and also by facilitating their self-employment through short grants with follow-up.
This is a five-year project that will be renewed as needed after assessing its impact on youth and society.
