Thanks to life skills training funded by Hand Heart Pocket, 21-year-old Nickson now has dreams to support his siblings and run his own small business.
The training is part of Save the Children’s Life Skills for Success program in the Morobe Province and National Capital District in Papua New Guinea.
Nickson says as a result of the training, he now has a different perspective and a broader view of life, and is hopeful for the future.
He is one of 104 young people to complete the program this past year, learning foundational skills for basic business start-ups; financial literacy and management; law and order; drug use prevention; and health and wellbeing, including reproductive health.
This training is aimed at young people aged 14-24 to help them further their education, engage in pathways to employment and equip them with essential life skills.
Hand Heart Pocket has a three-year partnership with Save the Children, having provided $500,000 for the Life Skills for Success program in Papua New Guinea.
