When coming up with solution ideas for the needs of people, one has to build a relationship with them that will breed trust. Then engage with them more deeply to understand their mindsets, their vision for their children, the root of the problems, their views about the problem, and what they would like to see as solutions.
We will present programmes on skill acquisition and financial literacy that have been set up for students and their parents. This is to equip them with tools for economic empowerment, enable parents to conveniently cater for the education and needs of their children.
The first stage is designed to be a train-the-trainers program. The next stage is community training, where students and parents trained would train others in the community. These would include older children, teenagers and other women in the community. One of the ways by which students can be inspired is also by getting them to interact with professionals, particularly in the areas which they aspire to function in the future.
Stories of how these individuals have overcome similar hurdles can be shared, alongside strategies to help the students achieve their dreams.
