Operation Compassion Helps to Re-Train Men in Third World

By , June 1, 2007

Working alongside other charities, Operation Compassion has set a path to help re-train men living in extreme poverty in third world countries. Many of these men have lost their jobs or are not qualified to be hired for lack of training. Operation Compassion is determined to help these men receive the necessary training so they can be hired and be better equipped to support their families.

Since the first of 2007, Operation Compassion has sent twenty-eight semis of auto mechanic repair tools, plumbing tools and equipment, electrical tools and various construction tools and equipment. These semis of tools have been valued at more than $28 million.

These tools are given to vocational technology schools that will train and instruct these men on the proper use and value of having a trade. At the conclusion of the training these men are given the tools they have been working with to use in their employment. In a few short weeks these men can go from living in homelessness to being fully employed and able to support their families.

This endeavor, of helping re-train men for active employment, is the third component of a planned attack to help families living in extreme poverty. The previous efforts involved feeding more than 4.8 million meals for children and building homes for 10,000 impoverished families. Operation Compassion has joined forces with four other international charities to bring this vision to reality.
