“Over $145,000 was invested this year for 222 youths in Toledo who completed life skills training programs required for entrepreneurship and employment opportunities.

“At the end of 2017 TIDE and the Department of Youth Services with funding from the US embassy implemented 16 vocational trainings, a total of 222 have graduated from these trainings. A total of $148,515 has been invested in the youths of the Toledo district. On behalf of TIDE and the Department of Youth Services, we would like to thank all the facilitators of these trainings. Additionally, I would like to wish all these graduates the best in their future jobs or business ventures. TIDE and the Department of Youth Services would like to encourage the general public to support these graduates by supporting their new businesses or provide jobs.”

During ceremonies to mark the successful completion of each of the training programs certificates and relative equipment needed by the youths in employment were presented to the participants by TIDE’s executive director Celia Mahung and senior youth officer of the Department of Youth Services Kiera Polonio. Similar training opportunities will be available for additional youths in Toledo as TIDE officials here confirm that plans are in place for life skills training programs to continue next year.
