The future of these poor women depends on extending our educational assistance to both adults and young people as this will make them self reliant. IIMAC believes that women who are lacking educational opportunities are trapped permanently in poverty. Without jobs or skills to generate income, many people have migrated from the rural farming communities to the cities in search. Unfortunately, many of these people fail to find work and are forced to exist on the streets as beggars some end up being used for sex worker or drug trafficking.
We constructed the adult Skills Training Center to give individuals the opportunity to learn new trades in order to generate income.
The training programs help to prepare the young adults to become employable and self-reliant. We believe this will result in better care for their families, as well as pass their skills on to enrich their families for generations to come.
In addition to learning valuable trades, every individual enrolled in our Skills Enhancement Program must learn basic reading skills and arithmetic. We hope that this knowledge will enable women to survive and thrive in the business world.
2. Women's Program:
Many women are the sole provider for their children. Our training programs are teaching women to have marketable skills that will enable them to generate an income. Currently, we enroll women at our Skills Training Center. They will be learning the following skills:
- Basket weaving
- Cotton Spinning
- Jewelry Making
- English Language
- Fashion and designing

Several IIMAC programs self funded and supported by volunteers. However, the schools that most need educators cannot afford to cover all of the costs associated with training, travel, insurance, and other expenses related to placing a teacher overseas. Because International Initiative For Mother And Child Nonprofit (IIMAC) receives no income from government grants or an endowment, we ask each volunteer to contribute or fundraise the cost of their placement and training in these countries, while the host community provides housing and a small stipend to support you during your service.
By requesting that volunteers help fund their service overseas, IIMAC is able to provide volunteer educators to local communities that would not otherwise be able to afford qualified teachers .The majority of our volunteers end up fundraising at least some portion of their program cost.
Room and board for all volunteers & year-long volunteers also receive a living stipend from the institution where they are teaching. Experience Required
