Vocational Training: New skills for brighter futures
Undergoing vocational training is a great way to learn new skills to start a new business and develop a sustainable source of income. At Islamic Relief, we train those who’ve been unable to gain an education in critical trades such as carpentry, electrical repairs, hairdressing, mobile phone repair, and sewing so they can work for themselves and support their families.
To enable these communities to find employment or set up a business, we provide critical training in practical skills to locals. At the end of their training, they can apply for equipment grants, loans, or join existing projects.
They are also supported with business plans and start-up toolkits to ensure that they’re supported every step of the way on their new venture.
Funding futures and transforming lives
At Islamic Relief, we don’t believe in simply distributing aid to communities in need. We instead fund futures. We aim to give the poorest and most vulnerable people across the world a chance to transform their lives for the better.
