The organization sets out to accomplish its mission by equipping the youth and marginalized women with skills to succeed in the information age. TFU believes that economic development and human welfare are sustainable through increased knowledge and literacy, self-reliance and empowerment. Therefore, TFUSDC’s project provides the tools, resources, training and venue which allow these vulnerable segments of society to take control of their lives and work towards a brighter future.
The TFUSDC’s objective and vision is to see development in our impoverished community through sustainable means. The organization has identified several projects to enable it carry out its objectives. The identified projects include tailoring, carpentry, hairdressing and computer training. The organization also believes that despite the challenges, people have diverse talents and can achieve their objectives and economic independence through skills training.
It is the organization’s belief that if these skills are imparted to the locals, it will help them sustain their livelihoods. TFU has implemented the tailoring project and we also have the intend to start a carpentry, hair dressing and computer training project as soon as we have enough space and resources.
TFU has been partnering with well-wishers and other organizations to help facilitate its programs.in view of this, TFU received donation of tailoring and carpentry tools from TWAM. These were for the establishment of skills training center for the local community. The launch started this year in January 2017 and per now we are having students in tailoring class. The performance of these students has been quite favorable as they can now produce outputs like shirts, uniforms, skirts and dresses of different fashions. As a result, most students plan to take examinations at the end of the course and also plan to have their own workshops after the course.
