Flashlight #16 – Concept Extension of HELOG Academy

Dear valuable Reader ,

again we have more news for you:

Concept Extension of HELOG Academy – Outpost Training Solutions

Because of the prevailing tense economic situation in Liberia and the resulting poverty, it is even becoming increasingly difficult for students to take part in our training programs at our school in Schiefflien. This is as a result of distance and commutation cost in the country where students are not given special preferences in public transports. If the transport costs are too high, the parents or students can no longer afford the costs to and from a point.

However, this will not prevent HELOG ACADEMY LIBERIA from continuing our recruitment process of our interested candidates from the immediate areas where the anxiety for vocational education is felt.

It will interest you as our valued readers to know that we are increasingly being asked to offer our courses and training expertise also in the rural areas. For HELOG it is a dream comes true as people in rural areas also need education and should be given the right to qualitative and standardized education in order to meet today’s competing markets. HELOG is always ready to offer those young people and adults irrespective of gender, the opportunity to receive modern technical trainings with standard procedures, for efficient service provision.

Therefore we decided to take up the concept of „Mobile Vocational Training“ which we have been considering years ago, and re- develop it according to the environment. Curricula’s adapted to the concept and revised training modules must be reconsidered to meet the skill level in those areas.

Likewise, of course, mobility must be created in order to achieve this goal. We will need a small van to carry the necessary training material, workbenches, technical equipment, tools, etc. on site.
It is a new challenge for us, especially raising the funds for this vehicle. However the situation does not leave many options.

We will gladly keep you posted.
