Skills to Build: vocational training in locksmithing

Aniceto Farnando attended the locksmith course at IFPELAC, in 2020, through the Skills to Build project, Swisscontact.  Inspired by his father, who was a professional locksmith, he challenged his fear for flames and today with different techniques he acquired during the training, he uses innovation to position himself in the labour market and is already reaping good results.  

The Skills to Build Project is based on the hypothesis that the development of skills and competencies for employment and self-employment will help young men and women to find better jobs and, therefore, achieve better incomes, therefore contributing to greater economic and social equity in the country. The project is financed by Christa Foundation, among other donors. As part of the Swisscontact Development Programme, it is co-financed by SDC (Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, Federal Department of Foreign Affairs FDFA).
