In 2018, we had 4 cycles of technical and professional courses, 2 in Chokwé and 2 in Xai-Xai. In total 80 youngsters attended courses in several areas: electricity, sewing, painting, accounting, plumbing, cooking, secretarial work and woodwork.
These courses are organised jointly with Mozambican State, with official certification and recognition. In 2019 we want to develop the professional internships’ potential to follow-up the courses.
ALG Sustainability – Technical Education intervention area involves training programmes that enable underprivileged youngsters to learn a trade which increases their employability levels, financial independence and self-sustainability.
The Xai-Xai courses aimed at our Portuguese sister-charity UPG Sponsored children from the programme Growing up with ALG are a recent ALG bet. At these two stages the courses had an amazing success rate. On both cycles 100% of students succeeded with an overall average of 15!
Congratulations to the graduates!
