Training in Helmand

10 November 2011 | Education

Mercy Corps: Here in Helmand, we train over 2,000 students per day who sign up for three-to-six month courses in a wide range of skills. We teach tailoring, sign-writing, metalwork, IT, English, basic nursing, and even TV repair. Our students come from all over Helmand — including many from the most violent parts, and those areas most affected by the conflict. We have students as young as 15 as well as more seasoned trainees, as well as a mix of tribes and backgrounds.
