Skills training is a key step toward ensuring sustainable livelihoods. Children in our programs can complement their traditional education with hands-on job skills. The purpose of the carpentry shop will be to teach youth in the Child Sponsorship Program woodworking by helping them develop skills such planning, measuring, squaring and cutting a board, driving nails, screws, clamps and the use of basic carpentry tools. Participants will have opportunities to build and repair furniture, and will be paid for their efforts.
In the long run, the carpentry program will provide career training, entrepreneurial skills, teamwork, and constructive afterschool activities for CORI’s youth.
A generous donation has allowed us to purchase all supplies necessary for our start-up! Ongoing donations will be used to cover maintenance and supply costs.
