All of the children in Kids for the Kingdom programs – schools, orphanages, feeding programs, and Bible Clubs – will eventually grow to become adults. They will all need a viable job skill to support themselves and their families and help break the cycle of poverty.
Because of the need for vocational skills Kids for the Kingdom is constantly working to create job-training and skills-training programs for youth. In recent years job-training centers have been established and expanded in nine countries. Kids for the Kingdom constantly develops new job-training programs and identifies national workers to run the programs. Once established, many of these programs will allow the individual to run their own business and bring in needed income to support themselves and their families for years to come. Hundreds of graduates of our programs have gone on to establish successful careers in the profession they learned through Kids for the Kingdom’s vocational training programs.
During 2014 and 2015 a total of 949 teen and young-adult boys and girls were enrolled in job-training programs offered by Kids for the Kingdom.
