“Never stand begging for what you have the power to earn.”
Al Fidaa Foundation believes that skilling individuals to become financially independent is the reliable approach to ridding the scourge of poverty and its ill effects from our communities. An individual who earns is a role model for future generations and is a boon to society. For this, an Enterprise Devlopement Centre has been catering for applicants to learn a skill and provide a platform for that individual to make a stand in todays harsh economic enviroment. Our aim is to gear the applicant not only with the theory but also with the equipement to start their own business or to further their studies by joining a reputable company who will further mould the individual to fit into the work place. Al Fidaa hopes to join hands with local companies to allow access to our trainees into the company workforce and to bestow applicants a real chance in the big world of commerce. The success of these projects will create breadwinners in our societies who can be a pillar to kids in their care, a motivational force for learners in schools to excel and for learners to have parents who can now provide stationery and school fees for learners.
We look forward to companies coming aboard by donating equipement/machinery or offering a working space to applicants. If companies could request our team with specific skills they are needy of, Al Fidaa could strive to teach applicants those skills bridging the gap between job searching and having the relevant qualifications. Due to our large data base of needy cases, Al Fidaa has the background checks necessary to select individuals for companies who require job placement for their companies.
Please view our Skills section for a detailed understanding of our Skills Development project which is vital in creating a workforce for local business to thrive and revive the economy other than social grants or temporary help outs which do not contribute any form of independence in individuals. The inevitable consequence of poverty is dependence” Hand outs of food to the poor has the negative aspect of making people lax to the goals of financial freedom and dependence ultimately removing the guilt of asking for ones needs or eying their wealth of others leading to a host of evils . . . it tastes well, the bread which you earn yourself.”
Unless it’s out of the goodness of someone’s heart, I don’t like having things given to me for free. I like working hard for what I earn. It gives me a sense of gratitude, and that’s the only way I can truly appreciate it.”
