Who doesn’t dream of a regulated income and an own family when he is young? The young generation of Liberia must learn to dream again. The Welthungerhilfe there encourages the education of teachers, the construction of educational centers as well as the professional training of agricultures, tailors, carpenters and electricians in courses of ten months duration.
It is important to transmit theoretical and practical know how of the organisation of a business as well as its financial concerns. Life-practical skills also belong to the training, like environment protection, solution of conflicts and decision skills.
”If you offer an apprenticeship to a man, it is a human being you are training. If you offer an apprenticeship to a woman, you are training a whole family.”
