Care Aide Livelihood Support Training Assistance
We are targeting sponsorship of suitable persons in our community to be trained in homecare aide skills. With supervised training by our team, they can become self-sufficient, with a stable wage that is better than the daily wage workers or rubber tappers – generally the only jobs available for these undocumented persons in the community. Having a practical skill that can be matched to clients through our network, will improve their standing in the community, and allow them to achieve financial independence. As they work side by side with us, we also hope that they will hear the heartbeat of the Gospel message.
