Vocational skill training

Tailoring and Informatics

Skill is the power to poverty eradication

A vocational skill training is the project proposed. This is intended to be located in Kabala town which is found in south western Uganda. Kabale is a densely populated area which has resulted into many children become vulnerable as a result of orphanage, poverty, child labor, and child abuse. Due to this, many children are disadvantaged since their house holds cannot afford basic needs of children. This has put the lives of many young children at risk and this poverty has resulted into an increase in high crime rate, prostitution, rape, theft, and committing suicide of young children due to frustrations, drug abuse, high chances of acquiring HIV/AIDS disease since children both girls and boys end up loitering in town and many other dangerous places.

Once this project has taken off, the beneficiaries will be vulnerable children and single mothers (guardians) who are low income earners due to lack of skills. This project will support already established projects in place in fighting poverty at house hold level which has become the core factor of vulnerability. It is estimated that this project will cost Uganda shillings 24.325.000
  
This project once established will play a pivotal role in the social economic development which will again be an answer to the affected people.
    
The proposed project will help the agency in equipping children and other school drop outs with skills which will be an answer to poverty eradication and will end child labor which has always affected vulnerable children due to lack of professional skills.
As this project starts, children who mat not be able successful in education will be equipped with skills and as a result their lost hope will be restored.

Once the project starts, children will start a six month training program and their guardians (single mothers). This will enable trainees to acquire skills alongside their academic. This will also give an opportunity to slow learners to get certain skills. Once the trainees finish, they will be able to get employment and get sweaters, and uniforms will be made from here as they sell them and get income for both the child and the project for sustainability. Every finished product, a child will be paid after selling for his/her labor hence an income generating project. After six months of training, each trainee will be provided with materials to produce 2 sets of finished products which will be sold for sustainability of the project.
 
It is hoped that once trainees have acquired skills in tailoring or informatics, some of the best will be absorbed into the project to train others. The project targets all disadvantaged children including school drop outs and single mothers. It is targeted to cater for about 400 trainees both children and guardians.

Rapport march - april 2012

A TWO WEEKS REPORT FOR VOCATIONAL SKILL TRAINING PROGRAMME AT CRVO
(FROM 27/03/2012 ��O7 /O4/2012) COMPILLED BY TUKWASIBWE JUNIOR, STAFF INCHARGE

INTRODUCTION


CRVO as earlier noted introduced a vocational skill training as a way to equip all vulnerable children and guardians with both knowledge and skills as they may in one way or the other help in fighting poverty at house hold level. The programme still targets all the school dropouts, and some other people of low income earners in the community. This is aimed at improving the welfare of the vulnerable class which will bring about social change and social development as well.

ACTIVITIES

Following the last report, we stated with 5 categories of activities and out of these only these (3) are progressing and are a doing well. The other 2 are still lacking due to some circumstances like may be people have not yet picked interest, No trainers as well as trainees, poor advertising and others.
The 3 activities which are progressing well are tailoring, knitting and crocheting. All the trainees are showing improvement in these fields. Some of our children have also improved in some of these fields, because in the last report there were no finished things but now am happy to report that we have some finished goods like sweaters ,table clothes, shirts, these have been done by both the children , other trainees, teachers and other staff members.
On the the side of equipments, only one knitting machine was received and added on the other two we have now 3 knitting machines, and produce good things
On the side of teachers, my teachers are still doing the best they can, I have not seen any problem with them apart from the other challenge I reported about one teacher otherwise they are trying their best of course with the help of other few staff members who are interested
All trainers are showing interest in whatever they are doing
As earlier reported my request in total maximum co-operation among all the concerned people. The other request is that everybody should help each other to identify every or an y a machine that gets a problem as early as possible and report to the concerned persons Such that the problem is solved with immediate effect.
Of course the overall manager should help us not to go astray and do some things contrally.

My suggestions would be:

i. To request all the trainers, trainees, our children, all staff and the Director to work hand in hand
ii. To request all staff members and our children as well as our guardians to help us in marketing some of our products out there in the communities they live in, as this will /may help us get some funds to support the organization.
My recommendation now goes to the organization and everybody who is putting in his /her effort for the good and the way to success towards this programme as this is mainly to bring about change in the lives of the vulnerable class in our communities.
One would conclude that, with everyones effort in term of time finance, advice, knowledge, skill, prayers, materials as well as good management, our programme will benefit many vulnerable people and will automatically serve its purpose.

Lastly, I wish to thank the friends from 'VLEUGELS VAN HOOP' - 'WINGS OF HOPE' who funded this project and hope that all our objectives will be met

Rapport July 2012

A BRIEF REPORT ABOUT THE VOCATIONAL SKILL TRAINING July 2012

Children rescue voluntary organization, started a vocational training program with the help of friends from WINGS OF HOPE MEMBERS. This project started very well as a strategy of equipping the marginalized children and their care givers with a skills. Hence fighting poverty at household level. THIS PROJECT Targeted all children under CRVO, guardians and parents of the same children, single mothers some of whom are HIV positive hence with healthy problems, children from low income families who failed to continue schooling due to fees problems.
We started with children under our program and 46 children were given the first priority to train from april to 30th jue2012,then latter alone we had consultative meetings with community leaders who identified some of school dropouts and single mothers in their area, we started with 5school dropouts,10 single mothers,12 guardians and 46children who are being supported by CRVO.
According to our program we designed a two months training which started on 1st may and has ended on 30thjune 2012 for the first group. During the training the following areas were covered
introduction to computer for some especially school dropouts
knitting sewing whereby they were taught parts of the machine, how to protect the machine, and lastly how to make sweaters, scuffs with different designs.
During the training they were taught how to use tailoring machines, parts of the machine and how to service and protect the machine then how to prepare anything you want to make using this machine, cutting and shaping, they learnt how to make dresses, trousers, shorts and shirts.
As a way of equipping them with more knowledge they were taught on how to make table clothes which is made out of thread and flames hence crocheting, On top of all these guidance and counseling was a key introduction on a daily basis bearing in mind that we have been training people who are psychologically tortured. This training is enabling many people in the community to realize that they are useful raw materials and this training has built hope and confidence and has made these people begin to know that they can fight poverty by acquiring skills. This program has given opportunity to some disadvantaged people to come up and air out their problems without fear hence this has worked as a voice. more still it has made people from different places to socialize and share challenges hence promoting team work amongst the community members. This program empowered disadvantaged people and guardians, children are able to make their uniforms, children’s lost hope has gained momentum to restoration
Despite all these some challenges have been met like lack of enough machines, lack of enough space since we are in rented place, lack of enough training materials, lack of enough trainers(teachers)due to funds. we wish to salute all members of Vleugels van Hoop (wings of hope) ASSOCIATION FOR THIS SUPPORT, and thank our trainers for the great work thy have done. we hope to have phase two which will start on 10th this month and hope that those who have gained are going to be our ambassadors in fighting poverty at household level despite their lack of machines to use. We continue to pledge our total commitment to ensuring that children’s state of living keep improving  throughout his highest degree of transparency in all our programs.
Soon we shall send you letters of appreciation from the trainers
Leonard for CRVO
