Vocational Training

VOCATIONAL TRAINING

The women of Korogocho struggles a lot to survive with their children to make ends meet. Some good Christian ladies lose their faith in Christ just because of lives’ economic harshness in trying to fend for their young ones. VPM is down to earth ministry that seek to reach out to these women of Korogocho with alternative answers to their problems.
Through our social workers, women groups in Korogocho and our church members , we manage to reach the desperate women in the slums by bringing them to VPM to enroll in our one year course in Tailoring/ Dressmaking , Knitting and embroidery.
After one year these ladies sit for Government Trade Test Grade III to qualify for skilled labour eligible for employment or start their own businesses despite their level of education.

OUR STORY

Many ladies have been rescued from desperation to successful dignified women earning a honest living through skills acquired at our Women Vocational Training. Work Aid UK Charity has over the years supplied VPM with tools and tailoring machines needed in our women vocational training.

OUR WORK

Last year, we had seven ladies sit for Grade III Government Trade Test examinations and they have all passed. The number registered last year (2015) was the least minimal because during last year we had “slum civil works Korogocho cohorts” that gave ladies manual jobs for ready cash payments leading to mass exodus of ladies from their course to cash labourers.

Our course has currently 23 women undergoing the course. We pray that we don’t suffer any drop outs this year 2016 like last year.

WOMEN OF VPM

The Seven women graduates of last year were given each a gift of machines from Workaid UK after passing their Grade III Trade Test to help them start
productive lives.
