‘THEY WANT TO LEARN, WILL YOU HELP THEM GO TO SCHOOL?’
GLADSON MSENDERA, MUSIC CROSSROADS MALAWI
A scholarship programme for 40 young people from the poorest families to train them in a short-term, practice-oriented course to become a metal worker. This is what Gladson Msendera from Music Crossroads in Malawi wants to realise together with Gered Gereedschap: ‘We offer support for the costs of the training, including the purchase of study materials. This is a great opportunity for these young people! With your support, they can receive vocational training and therefore have a prospect of a better life. Will you help us?’

SOLAR ENERGY OFFERS YOUNG PEOPLE A SUSTAINABLE WAY FORWARD
MESHCP in Uganda makes sustainable energy accessible to the local population. The solar panels that are installed are made by the organisation itself, in combination with a training programme to become a solar panel technician. In this way, young people learn a profession and can start to work immediately. However, more tools are needed to strengthen the training programme.
