A World Aware Inc. teaches business classes to the truly poor of the world. After just the first of a series of these classes, students have had the knowledge and confidence to step out and start their own business, apply for positions they were not comfortable with prior to the class, and exhibited traits that all employers seek in the job market. The down to the earth presentations give confidence as well as information to the students. The program requires participation in a volunteer effort to practice their newly learned skills, thus propelling them into the job market with great success.
Teaching excellent skills, but also to teach the students to give their knowledge to others freely is tryly the way things should be done. This is what makes AWA a vibrant and successful organization. They cover job skills in the trades from plumbing, carpentry, electrical, etc. but also business ownership, or how to be a really great employee. The support systems after the training is exceptional too. Requiring students to participate in a hands on project that gives back to the community sets a great standard and brings benefit to many. Keep it up AWA!
