EXAMPLE #1 : MAKE-UP COURSE
We conducted a make-up course (arts) for a group of abused victims - women and teenage girls - from a shelter. The trainer, who was matched to teach the course, is a past sexual abused victim.
Beyond being equipped with a practical life skill, the women and girls from the shelter experienced a renewed sense of hope as they heard the testimony of an overcomer and the trainer a renewed sense of purpose.
The programme created a safe space for healing and restoration to occur organically as community was forged when personal stories were shared.
EXAMPLE #2: APP DEVELOPMENT
TECHNOLOGY APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM
We conducted a month-long app development course for beneficiaries from the marginalised community.
Beneficiaries were trained intensively during the month before being involved in IT projects for 2 months under the guidance of a mentor for facilitated learning. This culminated with a 3-month placement as an intern in at IT company.
Through this 6 month programme, we hoped to help beneficiaries develop a sustainable livelihood.
