Vocational training at YLF

As part of our commitment at Yarang Llamisi Foundation (YLF) to empower the girl-child with the right education and skills required to become self-reliant, we will be offering free vocational training to young girls and women from Zambuk town and surrounding villages.

This vocational training will be offered alongside the free secondary education for young girls. At YLF, we believe developing the right skills will put these females on the right pathway to success, which will enable them to contribute adequately to society as well as the nation at large. 



Previous research has shown that vocational training has a positive impact on a person’s employment opportunities. Learning a highly sought-after skill through our free vocational training will enable many girls and women to acquire life skills and knowledge, which will help them set up their businesses, create better employment opportunities and income-generating ventures.


The vocational training will also increase the number of empowered females in the community and help break the cycle of generational poverty, which is one of our main commitments to the people of Zambuk and neighbouring villages.

The free vocational training offered at YLF focuses on providing technical knowledge to the young girls and women from the community with hands-on instructions to prepare them to work efficiently in specific fields. Girls and women will be able to receive training in cake making, photography, soap making, food seasoning making, sewing, knitting, jewellery making, hairdressing, computer skills, and more.

This training will help increase their self-confidence, self-motivation, and self-esteem levels. Which will help them communicate effectively, become more assertive, gain respect from their colleagues, encourage themselves, and stand out. 

The benefits of having vocational training cannot be overemphasised. Vocational training is so important because it equips people with the right practical skills to begin or enhance a career. Developing the right skills through adequate training will provide careers for life and freedom from the shackles of poverty. An empowered woman carries not just her family but the whole community along with her.

This is why YLF is passionate about offering vocational training to girls and women, to brighten the future of the people in Zambuk town and surrounding areas.
