Living without training and job opportunities can have a devastating impact on household income and the ability to feed, clothe and support a family. But vocational training programs can give trainees the experience, qualifications, and materials they need to get a job or start a small business. The skills they gain, build their self-reliance and reduce their dependency on aid.
 
Your gift will provide a man or woman with the vocational training they need to secure paid employment or establish a small business. It will help provide them with practical skills and experience so that they can support themselves and their families.

 
  “My father encouraged me to join the vocational training centre to increase my experience in my profession. It enhanced my experience and ability in practicing the craft and I was offered an on-the job training opportunity in a workshop close to home.  I am now the manager of this workshop."
- Mohammed, a graduate of one of the vocational training centres run by Act for Peace’s project partner, the Near East Council of Churches in Gaza

By giving a monthly gift, you can help bring safety, justice and dignity to people around the world who have fled from conflict and natural disasters.
