Life for Faith Mudandirini (30) came to a standstill when her husband was retrenched from work in 2013.  Her husband had been the breadwinner in her family as she was not economically active. She did not have any skills which she could use to either be employed or to become an entrepreneur.

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.”
