The Technical and Vocational skills program serves an “anchor” that grounds and strengthens the other Africa Development Promise programs. Through our training center we offer courses on basic and intermediate computer literacy and tailoring and sewing classes to interested community members. One of the advantages of the computer literacy courses is that it complements the business and financial management training courses that we offer the cooperatives, enabling them to access up-to-date information about crops so they can make better decisions. The tailoring project offers community members another means of generating income besides agriculture. Like the agricultural cooperatives, an important element of the tailoring program is the business and financial management which is critical to the the women monetizing their newly acquired skills.
