Vocational training on Carpentry for rural youths
One of the salient features of SIDS is to create income generation opportunities for the unemployed poor youths. SIDS organized a vocational training on Carpentry with eight poor youths for three months. The main objective of this training was to create a basic knowledge among the youths and to create interest in this vocational training. Throughout ancient history until our modern era, every civilization in the world has used wood to create useful as well as beautiful and decorative objects.Woodworking, in fact, was one of humankind’s first skills. After training, the trainees will primarily be able to do any type of works of the doors, windows, flooring, roofs and almost every other wood component of a structure. A six –month course is required to make furniture. Due to lack of funds it was not possible for us to do this training properly.
