Renewable energy technical training is giving youth a second chance

Youth attending Don Bosco Oysterbay, located in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, are able to access technical training in renewable energy thanks to a project that was launched two years ago in partnership with Misereor, a German Catholic Bishops’ Organization for Development Cooperation, to help advance this training capacity.

Funding from the partnership with Misereor has equipped Don Bosco Oysterbay with tools, training materials and enough equipment to provide education to 120 students every year.

The program, which started in 2017, has been training vulnerable youth in technical skills that will help them become change makers in their communities as innovators, technicians and entrepreneurs. To prepare them for the workforce, trainees benefit from career guidance and entrepreneurship skills provided by Don Bosco’s Job Placement Office. The job placement office empowers youth to realize their full potential by connecting them with employers and entrepreneurship opportunities. In addition, trainees are able to access soft skills training to build their self-confidence and communication skills.
