Vocational/Technical Skills Project

 As families progress on the road to self-sufficiency, training and education in a variety of skills increasingly become an essential basic need.  Otherwise, the chances of regressing to where they will need continuous hand-outs from others get higher.  Examples of needed skills include but are not limited to

  • subsistence farming
  •  carpentry
  • electrical wiring
  • plumbing
  • sewing
  • cooking
  • health and nutrition among others.  

Trustlines espouses to identify and address needed and desired skills among recipients from the very beginning via the following means

  • Individualizes vocational skills training
  • Develops a practical curriculum for sustainable activities to meet needs
  • Teaches hands-on skills
  • Identifies and recruits local mentors and sponsors 
  • Provides resources such as a teacher and literature to support & strengthen learning
  • Teaches employable skills
  • Facilitates sustainable farming methods
  • Promotes efficient farming equipment

An investment in a family would link communities to mentors to provide them with starter hands-on material and skills that are enough to propel them to a more substantive training.
