September, 2014

 

With the support of DVV International under the Adult Education for Development Project “AEforD” framework in Muhay Community Development Center, Muhay Ahla volunteers launched “learn a profession… lead a successful life” initiative. The launch kicked off with a workshop organized in collaboration with the Development and Employment Fund and another awareness lecture organized in collaboration with the Vocational Training Corporation. Both events targeted unemployed graduates in Muhay.

 

This initiative aims at promoting the importance of looking for nontraditional career options among students and families in Muhay. The initiative highlights the urging need of Muhay for vocational services and professions, which if created, will improve livelihoods, empower the community economically and create better life opportunities for young men and women.

 

The Development and Employment Fund workshop came as a first step in the initiative with the aim of introducing possible and accessible means of funding and development. The Fund representatives introduced mechanisms and services that can be easily accessed by locals and graduates from Muhay. Success stories were also shared with the attendants.

Following this workshop, the volunteers organised another awareness lecture in collaboration with the Vocational Training Corporation. This lecture aimed at introducing tenth grade students and their families of the Vocational Training Corporation’s services in order to broaden their future prospects. At the end of the lecture, the students presented a theatrical sketch in which they promoted vocational education and its impact on the societal development.

Muhay Ahla volunteers are leading community-based initiatives in which their skills are best utilized to serve their community and open new livelihood opportunities for them and for others.
