It empowers individuals, organizations, enterprises and communities and fosters employment, decent work and lifelong learning thereby promoting inclusive and sustainable economic growth and competitiveness, social equity and environmental sustainability.

The Sustainable Development Agenda acknowledges the importance of TVET mainly, but not only, under Goal 4, 8 and 9, respectively on education; inclusive economic growth and decent work; and industry, innovation and infrastructure. SDG4, the education agenda, commits the international community to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and to promote lifelong learning opportunities for all by 2030. Three targets under SDG4 (4.3, 4.4 and 4.5) have an explicit mentioning of TVET covering issues related to access, relevance and gender equality.

Our approach to Vocational Education and Training:

An inclusive approach to TVET

We aim to take inclusive approach in all our activities in order to deal with the underlying and long-term causes of unemployment. For this reason, we design short and long-term Skills Development programs to capacitate Youth and most venerable community for job creation.

We aim at making TEVT equitable for all. We projects are designed to offer skills at urban, rural and remote area through static (on camp) and Mobile training. We adopt inclusive approaches to make sure female and male are given equal opportunities for skills training and employment.

Through TVET we aim at addressing cross cutting issues such as; Literacy and numeracy, gender equality, gender base violence, HIV ADIS, peacebuilding etc.

Stakeholders Engagement

We adopted TVET Stakeholders engagement approach at all levels and at all stages of a project to coordinate and harmonize approaches toward provision of quality and certified TVET. At early project stages we plan for the transfer of the responsibility for the project to the target community. In the course of the situation analysis, the traditional knowledge and measures relating to crisis management are identified, in order to make sure that the implemented food security activities are appropriate for the community.
