Training is one way that Umala Mission offers youth the skills to enable them to begin a business or gain employment.

SOAP MAKING TRAINING

This activity took place on the 20th of January 2021

Eighteen young men and women participated in this activity, breaking the monotony of day-to-day living in rural Umala.

JOB OPPORTUNITIES

Many youths are unemployed due to limited opportunities coupled with a lack of skills.

Teaching practical skills will enable them to create job opportunities for themselves and be ready for the competitive job market.

Ignorance and lack of necessary skills make youth unproductive. 

Some participants, after this forum have been awakened.

They all agreed that information is power.
