Earlier this month, CLWR’s Jenn Ardon joined the Waterloo Lutheran Seminary on a study tour of the Holy Land. While there, they visited CLWR partners in the region, including the Vocational Training Program run by Lutheran World Federation-Jerusalem.
The VTP makes a big difference in the lives of Palestinian youth and young adults, by providing them with training in jobs including auto-mechanics, plumbing and central heating repair, catering and office administration. Ninety per cent of graduates find work at least six months after graduating.
In a region where poverty and unemployment are all too common, the VTP brings success to its students. CLWR is pleased to support it.
