Vocational Training

Mercy Mission aims to provide young people with the skills and knowledge needed for their future.  Many of our young people in Mercy Home go on to local colleges. The Mission also provides employment training for local people.

Josephs Workshop provides training each year for young women to learn practical tailoring skills which enable them to work from home and to support their families.  On completion of training,  many have been helped with a loan to purchase their own sewing machine. Some of the older girls from Mercy Mission home have also joined the classes.

A recent workshop run by a professional jewellery designer from England trained 25 local women in the skills necessary to produce a range of jewellery. some of these women are being financially supported to continue to use their skills. It is hoped that these women will become financially independent through using these newly acquired skills. 

A fund has been set up to provide for the further education of Mercy Home children when the situation arises. Contributions to this fund are most welcome and will help to secure a stable future for the children when they leave Mercy Home. Please do contact us if you would like to help in this way.
