Why do we need this special program independent of what the students can get in there training institutions. We have observed that a lot of the curricular in universities and institutions of higher learning focus on giving students the skills they need as prescribed by their course. So if you are an engineer, they will train you in skills of engineering. If you’re a doctor like me, they will train you in the skills of being a doctor. But once you get out of university or higher institution of learning, you find the real world out there. The real world out there is not the same as the world you enjoying when you a students, first of all, for you to be able to uh, get employed or start your own business, you need the knowhow. And this knowhow is not taught at university. And then the whole aspect of life skills people expect that you jump out of college, you are a young person.
You reach there and all of a sudden you know how to manage your money. You know how to manage your relationships. You know how to communicate you, you know how to, um, uh, to do life. And it’s not like that. We know that many young people, when they come out, they get lost simply because this system, the education system does not prepare them for further beyond their graduation and also farther beyond into living life. So that’s why we think that this gap is what skilling young adults is aiming to fill. It’s not a gap that is small. It’s a very, very big gap.
