The project will directly provide high level training to students with emphasis on school drop-outs from vulnerable Syrian refugee and the host communities in five different technical vocational fields.
Fard Vocational Hub Project aims to:
- Build the capacity of Syrian Youth in the field of construction, residential installations and renovations to have a certified, accredited and well-equipped team of workers with the highest standards that can rebuild future Syria when the time comes
- Improve self-reliance and livelihoods of vulnerable Syrian and African refugees and vulnerable host population in Egypt.
This will be done through the provision of training to women, men and youth in 6th of October, which will help to limit reliance on humanitarian aid, offer them more sustainable sources of income and promote positive coping mechanisms thus enabling them to feel that life is returning to normalcy.
The facility will focus its Technical Vocational Training (TVT) Program on “Home Renovation” which includes carpentry, plumbing, electricity, tiling, painting and plastering.
The program consists of a series of courses for tackling home projects. Each course is hands-on and course content that covers correct building techniques used by tradespeople necessary to meet the job demand.
Students will discover how to complete specific home renewal tasks and how to apply these new techniques and skills to their own projects. Proper safety standards necessary to complete each project will be emphasized.
A special carpentry course will be introduced as a pilot workshop and to facilitate training for women with children, a child friendly space will be established to enable mothers attend trainings while their children are being looked after by the centre’s child facilitators providing them with different activities.
Duration of the project: 12 months
