Project Overview

 

The Vocational Training and Employment Support Services (VTESS) project provides impoverished children and young people with low-cost vocational training.

 

Our  Vocational Training Centre aims to give the most disadvantaged young people a second chance in life, by giving them the skills and confidence to find a job and live independently.   .

 

Project Background

 

Lotus Caring Hands (LCH) is helping children and youth affected by the war, deal with their trauma and cope with every day life by providing them with basic education, vocational training, counselling support, and ensuring they are accepted and reintegrated within their community.

 

LCH is helping children and youth affected by the war, deal with their trauma and cope with every day life by providing them with basic education, vocational training, counselling support, and ensuring they are accepted and reintegrated within their community. Paranthan Hindu Maha Vidyalayam (PHMv)’s building will renovate for the evening and weekend vocational training in the Paranthan, Sri Lanka.

 

Many of these children have been unable to attend school or have left at an early age. This means they are very unlikely to be employed and have a chance to break out of the poverty cycle. We are particularly committed to the process of deinstitutionalization and supporting vulnerable people to become integrated in main-stream society with every opportunity to lead full lives.
