All children dropouts’ supporters believe that children should not work, therefore, through different ways they fight child labor, particularly the worst forms of it. However, the harsh reality is, that the living and economic condition of most of these children’s makes avoiding child labor impossible. Through cultural dialogues, changing the attitudes of some families towards child labor can be time consuming.
In such circumstances, one of the appropriate ways to support these children is by providing “Vocational skills training” together with “official training and education “. Through this, at least theses children will develop some skills which will help them work in a less stressful environment. These training can also help changing the future of child labor by providing a start towards improving on these skills and growing it as a profession for a better income and easier jobs.
Hence, Hami’s training centers are working hard towards the realization of the slogan “Every child, a skill” for all boys and girls. Hami believes, if Afghan refugee children especially girls, gain some skills and talents they would be less likely to go through painful experiences and harsh treatments of employers. The ability of girls in playing an effective role in family’s economic security can save them from forcibly becoming a child bride.
Hami is working hard to provide training in the current school year with arts such as leather (making bags and key holders), felt embroidery (making flowers, dolls and bags), knitting (bags and little doll) and tailoring (kitchen sets) for more than 50 schoolgirls aged 12 to 17 years; it is important to realize the slogan “Every child, a skill”.
