This method of forming cooperatives and companies for our trainees is unique and it will help everyone to use the acquired skills. Others train and let the trainees go. It will help to help them build their capacities and to be coach them. It will, also help to guide and collect them as well as facilities providence. YOPLES will be their mother institution. Every promotion will form cooperative or company.this is a pre-requirement to be trained. If one promotion goes to form a cooperative we will train another new promotion will supervising the formed cooperative. This cycle is also unique.

Thank you Takamine. The activities that i plan to implement most of them already started. YOPLES provides training about applicable skills in legal and entrepreneurship domains. In legal domains, we train unemployed poor law graduates about legal drafting of contracts, statutes of associations etc . These law graduates also provide legal consultancy and legal aid. In entrepreneurship domains we train other remaining graduates to make lamps in horns and welding ( making chairs,tables, ornaments etc.). Very soon we are going to start making selling the first well done products. I plan that, as we will be keeping training new comers, every promotion will form its own cooperative to use the acquired knowledge for making their own money and pay some amount monthly to YOPLES. In five years i plan to have impacted 20,000 unemployed graduates and help them start their own businesses but the most performing students will be employed within YOPLES. Our long-term vision is to create a vocational training center that will be always making cooperatives and companies for its students to monitor them. This program is unique from others because, they train and let the students go to search jobs for themselves. sometimes they remain home while they have that skill.I will make sure that everyone of our trainees will be employed himself or by the common company or cooperative. YOPLES will be drafting for free their statutes and other legal documents. We will be helping them to get registered and to implement.
