Job Training for Handicapped Kids in India
Goal: $3,080 to train 60 kids
About this Mission Project
The REACH Mission strives to support children by providing education and skills training to orphans and children who are physically handicapped so they may be able to support themselves. REACH is a ministry of the Centenary Baptist Church in Hanamkonda, South India.
This project seeks to provide training to 60 youths in Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop and DTP, as well as in skills such as sewing and embroidery. This will help them be able to compete with others in the marketplace.
Funds will be used to purchase computers, sewing machines, stools and chairs, in addition to providing a stipend for the training instructors.
A gift of $100 will pay the stipend of one computer or sewing instructor for a month. $250 will help pay the stipends of two instructors for two months as well as covering maintenance charges for the class equipment.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $3,080 to provide equipment and instructors for computer skills and sewing training courses. The purpose of the project is to provide 60 children with special needs in the REACH Mission of South India with job skills training so they can support themselves.
The project will be managed by Dr. T. Christopher Ruben, REACH chairman, and by Mrs. Betsy Silas, the manager of REACH. It is anticipated that this project will help the children to be competitive in the job market and able to contribute to their communities.
