Our UPG Portugal Sponsored children are growing up and getting older. So, we have been more concerned with the youngsters, supporting initiatives that promote their future sustainability. The Technical Courses enable these youngsters to build up skills that will provide them income generating tools.
In 2021, the Technical Courses are back in Chokwé!! In local partnership with the Professional Training Institute (IFPELAC), A Little Gesture has organised electricity, sewing and IT courses for 27 youngsters (52% of girls).
They will be assessed based on their attendance, with a theoretical and practical test, and will have access to an internship to consolidate their knowledge. The electricity and sewing courses will take place between September and December, while the IT course takes place between September and November. The budgeted cost for this initiative is €10,613.
