4 Students, 3 Volunteers and 1 Goal: to find a job
A few times a year, when the children are writing exams, DAKTARI hosts a job-hunting program. Local unemployed youths stay at the DAKTARI camp for a week and learn valuable CV, job research and interview skills.
After their week here, DAKTARI runs follow up workshops in the village to support their job-hunting efforts and expand the students' skills sets. Last week, DAKTARI conducted a workshop in the Oaks Village that was attended by four students from the job-hunting program: Titus, Portia, Honest and Valencia. The volunteers helped them adjust their motivation letters and reviewed how they could improve their job research. This included how to make a good impression when introducing yourself to a future employer.
For two intense hours the students worked hard and have left the workshop with a renewed hope of finding a job. We are confident that these hardworking individuals will soon be employed.
