Community empowerment is achieved, when we empower and support its people, and help them to build their future. Makhzoumi Foundation’s Vocational Training Program provides trainees with the necessary scientific, technical and professional skills to encourage knowledge demand and stimulate self-reliance.
Among the many professional courses offered by Makhzoumi Foundation, are free courses for young people aged 16 to 30 who drop out of school in the specialties of wall painting, wallpaper and tiling in Beirut, Mount Lebanon, Tripoli and Zahle, and Baalbek, in cooperation with GIZ. The successful in the course gets a certificate, plus a tool kit to help him start his work.
In preparation for these courses, Makhzoumi Foundation held a training for trainers TOT, during which a number of young people were trained on the skills of tiling work, rules of operation and methods of application, and rules of public safety.
Trainers who have undergone these courses will, in turn, train the program’s targeted youth to teach them a self-sustaining occupation.
