Vocational Training Center

Vocational Training Centre

In Zanzibar, approximately 40% of children are used as child laborers due to the poverty and
hunger levels in families. Under the working conditions, it becomes impossible for children to get a decent education, causing 41% of adults to be illiterate in the future. As a result, the workers in Zanzibar get into a cycle where they get employed for low payments under hard conditions due to limited education and skills.

MISSION AND VISION

At Assalam Community Foundation, we want to support young people who have the potential to help the economic stability of the country in the future by organizing vocational youth camps.

Our youth camp consists of 40 rooms, 8 classrooms, a library as well as a dining hall giving enough space to offer the young people an optimal learning and living atmosphere for a better-qualified education.

With our classes in 8 different vocational areas, the young students will graduate after one year with a certain degree to be employed in the sectors that are considered to bring a major income to the country’s economy.

To ensure the project's sustainability, every product made during the camps will be available for sale. Also, every summer two-week youth camps will be organized for local and international kids including activities for cultural exchange. This income from the international camps will also be invested in the Vocational Training Centre.
