ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

CESA — Auxiliadora Socioprofessional Training Centre is a vocational training centre located in Viana (Angola). It is owned by the Salesia-nas Sisters, one of Rosto Solidário’s partners in Angola. This Centre promotes literacy classes and vocational training to local residents, particularly women and young people. Viana is a poor, peri-urban municipality of Luanda (Angola’s capital city). In this area unemploy-ment rates are high and most households rely on informal market activities, characterized by uncertain small businesses and casual work.

ACTIVITIES

This is a two weeks’ to a month training experience. Activities include:

  • Briefing on both local context and project background and aims;
  • Meetings with the Centre’s trainers and trainees;
  • Meetings with local households and their informal businesses;
  • Propose and facilitate relevant training to CESA staff;
    •    Final Assessment of the informal training experience with CESA’s team.

THIS EXPERIENCE WILL ALLOW YOU TO:

  • Understand the challenges of living in a peri-urban neighbou-rhood of a capital city in Africa;
  • Grasp the challenges posed in household and informal economy contexts, along with the survival strategies in face of economic and social uncertainty.
  • Identify vocational training opportunities and challenges.
