Junaid commented on School Of Skills

Hello Richard Chowning 

First of all thankyou very much! for taking out time and actually going through our idea. Exactly you got it right that the idea actually requires refinement and I totally agree on that. Our idea is all about to craft the courses that are really require by the students that can be helpful for them to get jobs not only in east africa but globally.

We are also going to bridge the existed unemployed graduates with proper job portals where they can actually land jobs and can start earning online.

But the real thing is actually making required changes from the root and that is "schools" at hand. The curriculum should be such that they can help students to work in East Africa and overall. Students should have multiple options after their graduations, they should know the concept of what freelancing is and how they can be successful with their present skills.

Apart from that vocational courses would really help them to bridge the gaps that inhibit them from landing jobs.
