Our users belong to impoverished families who are heavily dependent on government benefits or are on low income. As a result of their BMI status they cannot attend generic programmes as they require separate gender classes. The only option is expensive private training which they cannot afford. The result is that they lack job qualifications skills and are stuck in a never ending cycle of poverty. We are addressing the low level skills of young people and providing them with training.


Computer courses will solve this unemployment cycle by providing the young people with the necessary skills and knowledge to receive respectable and well paying jobs. This would allow them to break free from the poverty cycle they are currently stuck in. Computer course will be certified by City and Guilds and lead to Level 2/3 Certificate and Diploma. Young people will have access to a high quality course in an environment that is line with their cultural requirements- single gender classes.
