Background and objectives
GLOWA is transitioning from vocational rehabilitation of victims of trafficking by placement with external trainers to the organization owned one-stop facility for long term recovery. In order effectively offer vocational training in hairdressing to recued victims, we seek the help of a volunteers to help develop that modules for providing vocational training in hairdressing to lowly educated and traumatized young people such as survivors of trafficking.
Manual labor & skilled trade
None in particular
GLOWA is a counter trafficking organization that has been providing vocational rehabilitation services to rescued victims of trafficking by placing them with external trainers for training. A recent evaluation of the program revealed great disparities in skills acquired from different workshop amongst the trainees. The evaluation also revealed that external trainers are business minded individuals who don’t master the needs of abused and traumatized children. Additionally, the evaluation indicated that the external training environment is not adapted to the training needs of abused children who regularly get stigmatized by their peers with normal backgrounds. Considering that there is no national vocational training curriculum in Cameroon, we seek the help of volunteers to develop modules to be used in a GLOWA owned facility to provide professional training in hairdressing to rescued victims of trafficking. There is a ready team at GLOWA to support the volunteer and provide any information that will help in developing the training modules
Volunteers: 4 needed
6-10 hours per week / 12 weeks
Knowledge of training in hairdressing is important for this opportunity. Our vocational training program should be 60% practical and 40% theory and be trainees centered with the trainer only serving as a facilitator to the acquisition of knowledge and skills. It is also important for the volunteer to know that the trainees are emotionally shattered young people whose minds keep wandering and so short training sessions will be the most effective for desired skills development.
