ChildFund works with youth to ensure they have the marketable and life skills they need to make a successful transition into the work force. In one program, we train youth as trainers themselves, and they impart their knowledge to other young people. When provided with training and material for producing mats, carpets and baskets, they are equipped for employment or to create their own entrepreneurial opportunities.
To support young people at risk for low academic achievement, especially orphans and vulnerable children affected by HIV or AIDS, ChildFund trains youth as tutors who provide academic support and mentoring for younger children throughout the school years.
Training programs in healthy living, including reproductive health, educate young individuals about making decisions that are most likely to preserve their potential and opportunities.
