Youth Empowerment Programme (YEP)

Part of our vision to end child trafficking is to provide youth with a solid foundation of career skills. This enables these young people to break the cycle of poverty which leads to trafficking. Our Youth Empowerment Programme is a free training course for young members of the community, aged 15-25. As a part of the course, the participants learn a trade under the supervision of a teacher. Some of the trades include sewing, beauty therapy, barbering, phone repair, digital TV installation, and driving, among others. The youth also learn computer, business, and leadership skills allowing them to begin and advance their careers.
