Technical skills training for out of school youth and livelihood projects promotion for urban poor communities
Through this social entrepreneurship project, Global Initiative For Exchange And Development Inc. (GIED) aims to increase the employability of youth and improve the life quality of urban underprivileged families in the Philippines.
To achieve this, the Austrian volunteer Roland Panny will assist the on-going training in upholstery making for out of school youth and help to scout for more young candidates. Furthermore, he will participate in an urban edible garden project, where he will assist a core-group of people to set-up of a pilot project in the Bukas Palad Cebu Foundation. He will support the promotion of both projects in the local community and raise awareness of best practices.
A five-day orientation that included a social entrepreneurship workshop was organised by GIED together with the project Bukas Palad Cebu Foundation. The workshop prepared Ronald Panny to develop and support the two project for local communities in the Philippines.
