Why we offer vocational training

Training instead of fleeing home

Many Ethiopians see only one way out of their material hardship: they travel to the Gulf states, some of them illegally, as guest workers. There they often lead a life as slave labor and are exploited and abused.

Other women have to work as day laborers at home in Ethiopia for starvation wages.

Menschen für Menschen offers them alternatives: In a six-month course, we train particularly poor women to become housekeepers and turn them into sought-after professionals.
