The HOPE program

The HOPE (Holistic Professional Excellence) Training Program is a multi-aspect training course that aims to hone the Out-of-School-Youth (OSY) not only in the SKILLS needed to perform a job, but equally as important, to mold them to become responsible and productive members of their family, community and the society. We provide them structured learning through a seminar-workshop in Professional Attitude, Character, Team Initiative and Values Enhancement (PRO-ACTIVE). To complete the holistic learning model and to give them competitive advantage, a Basic Communication Skills Training is also provided.

In this Agricultural-Entrepreneurship Training, the SKILLS component focuses on the two Major Skills Learning: Agricultural and Entrepreneurial Skills. The main premise is that to make agriculture an effective and immediate tool in addressing poverty, it should be coupled with Entrepreneurship Training so that it can be a means of livelihood which can augment a family income even on a subsistence level.
