The Youth Transferable Skills Project (YTS)

This Project targets both resettled children and those from the community between the ages of twelve and twenty two years. The project is aimed at preparing and empowering young adults to be economically productive and independent to be in position to make a contribution to society within their communities. The approach emphasizes self-empowerment as a measure of breaking the inter-generational cycle of poverty. To harmonize the above, SASCU through partnership with International Women Organization established a tailoring project at the Centre.

It is used as training and an income generating source for the organization. SASCU established a hair dressing salon which currently offers apprenticeship to young adults’ in terms of skills development and income generation to the organization. A craft shoe making project is yet another sustainable component that is run by ex-street children at the Centre.
