TRAINING

We aim to empower young women from vulnerable and hotspot communities by providing effective, accredited, vocational programs, fostering knowledge and creating pathways to income-generating opportunities, leading to financial independence. 

Therefore, Homes of Hope offers various training opportunities for girls and young mothers who have enrolled in our program:

  • attendees may obtain certificates from networked training institutions.

  • attendees are taught to be smart money managers and capable entrepreneurs using hands-on training and cash-in-hand practical business processes.

  • Four learning labs are on the residential campus: bakery; guest house; farm; and sewing. All the labs teach both soft and hard skills.

  • While the mothers are learning, their children are cared for in the Creative Learning Center (CLC) gaining cognitive development through basic literacy and numeracy as well as learning appropriate social behavior - particularly safe and unsafe touch.

BAKERY & FOOD PROCESSING

The bakery and food processing lab is a wonderful training area for our participants who wish to work in the food industry. The bakery allows them to develop skills such as keeping the area clean, understanding how to bake and cook different sweet and savory foods, measuring quantities, and pricing products to sell.

 

The bakery and food processing lab also allows a girl to learn business processes, marketing, and salesmanship. Learning to “get out there” is an important and empowering life lesson.

GUEST HOUSES

 

For those looking for accommodations away from the typical tourism areas, our Guest Houses are a perfect fit. Working at our guest houses allows our training participants to be trained in common day-to-day skills in the area of hospitality. Skills are gained in improving their English, interacting with and addressing visitors appropriately, making a bed properly, and cleaning and maintaining a home. 

The guest houses provide a great “real life” experience in hospitality and housekeeping. This experience has allowed many of our girls to find employment in Fiji’s tourism industry.

FARM

 

Homes of Hope practices and teaches sustainable, organic farming techniques. Participants can learn animal husbandry and gardening using the resources found right on campus. For example, our sheep feed comes from grasses grown on the land. The sheep manure is used to fertilize the gardens. The same cycle of integrated farming is used for the tilapia ponds. Each of these skills teach a process and system that can be used for all agricultural pursuits.

Sewing

Our sewing lab teaches the basics in sewing by machine and by hand. The participants who excel are given the opportunity to earn their own sewing machine that they can later use in a home business as well providing them with the opportunity to sew their own clothing.
