The Training Program
Since its creation in May 2009, the center has been a place where people with special needs are trained and supported in skills compatible to their disabilities, for a fulfilling life. The center offers FREE vocational rehabilitation to persons with disabilities through training in income generating life skills like:
-Jewelry and -Poultry
We also go on to offer moral enhancement workshops, and capacity building workshops on economic productivity.
The trainees receive life skill training for a period of 2 years after which they are supported with promotional material to enable them set up their own workshops back in their communities. After graduation and reinsertion, we do not stop but go on to monitor the ex-trainees so that we can evaluate their success and offer technical support from time to time.
The centre also offers dormitory services. This enables people who come from far places to stay and receive their training without any accommodation problems. The dormitory also runs a restaurant where the trainees are feed 3 times a day at a subsidised price of 100frs/meal.
After they have received training and are graduated, SHUMAS provides all with start up material to support their reinsertion and start of their workshops.
