Learning a socially valuable skill can help a young person earn a steady income and provide for their family. Concern works with young people living in extreme poverty to provide them with both the training and equipment needed to learn a technical skill, helping them to develop a sustainable livelihood.

You could help to put 10 young people through a six month apprenticeship.

This gift goes towards our livelihoods programme.
