Faith heard about Young Africa courses from a friend and she quickly registered for the catering course at the Young Africa Skills Centre, Chitungwiza. After completing her training at Chitungwiza she was placed on attachment at Kebab Mater, a restaurant in Harare, for four months.
Initially, adjusting to the demands of a work place were challenging for her. However, with the support of her supervisor she flourished. Faith was very determined and by the end of the attachment period she was offered a full-time job. Faith is now earning $250 per month. Faith attributes the change in her life to Young Africa’s integrated vocational training. She said: ‘I had a negative attitude towards working and l did not have any goals in my life. Through life skills lessons I managed to change my attitude towards work and life in general. The training enabled me to be a more focused person in life and l started to set personal goals.”
