Bilingual training in the training center
It should finally start in July 2021. In cooperation with YMCA / Togo and the sponsor help alliance .
Many thanks to both, especially help alliance, for making the project possible!
It is still only the cornerstone that points to the new training center. And this is how we get there:
A German-Togolese family is providing our association kommTOGOgehweiter eV with a piece of land in Dévikinme, which is intended to serve purpose-related innovative projects for young people.
Our association would like to give impetus there to give poor young adults in Togo better job opportunities in Togo through basic training and to bind them more to their country. Unfortunately, after graduating from high school, the prospects for many gifted high school graduates are poor, especially in rural areas.
They cannot afford the much larger expenses for studying, so that many of them go to Lomé (capital) in the hope of finding work there, but mostly end up unemployed or as cheap moped taxi drivers.
Our planned training center does not yet exist in Togo of its kind. It is intended to serve as a “springboard” for school leavers to get better jobs afterwards or to start their own start-up companies. The special feature is that the training will take place in German, French and English and with training staff from Togo and Germany. Our 2-year training offers initially cover the following areas:
commercial occupation in aviation
technical jobs in electronics, mechanics and computer science
Careers in nursing, medical assistance and hygiene
Until the start of the planned training center, we currently have 55 trainees distributed in Togo in our program. More here .
Foundation stone ceremony
The village and the whole area were actively involved, as were our trainees. In front of other guests from administration, politics and training institutions, our chairman reminded everyone of the task of promoting the talents of young people and giving them the freedom they need.
The celebration of the laying of the foundation stone was associated with attracting many officials from administration, politics, crafts, possible further sponsors, the residents of the village and, above all, the young people for our ambitious idea. More about the idea of our training center in the interview for Radio Victoire FM / Togo .
The village and surroundings were actively involved, as well as the apprentices. Our chairman reminded the invited guests, from the administration, the politics and the training centers, of the duty of the community to support the talents of the young people and need of free-space for them to develop these talents.
With the celebration of laying the foundation stone, a goal was to get many officials from administration, politics, craftmen, possible sponsors, the residents of the village and most of all the young people, enthusiastic about our ambitious idea. More to the idea of our apprenticeship-training-centers can be heard in the Interview for Radio Victoire FM / Togo.
