Vocational training for children
Mindanao is considered as a notorious place here in Philippines. We all know that there are some places which was affected by war initiated by the muslims rebels. According to Ramon Bobier the acting Australian Project Coordinator that the Basic Education Assistance for Mindanao (BEAM) has a project and this project is in line with one of the two goals of helping marginalize sectors access education. And the other is to assist the government achieve quality education.
The subject that they are going to study were welding, carpentry, electrical wiring and metal art welding and this are accredited by TESDA. The BEAM will be the one to finance all the expenses for their schooling, materials, allowances for trainees.
The war should not be the reason to hinder these young people to arm them with their talents as well as learning that will serve them to reach their goals and have them a brighter future. I appreciate those people who has a good heart for helping this young people. Thank you BEAM!
