Chenda* is one of the fathers of a child receiving M’Lop Tapang services recently attended our Outreach Team’s parents meeting. He had been trying to support his family by working as an occasional day laborer, but he was suffering from a health complaint that stopped him being able to do this job well.
He came to the Futures office recently. The Futures team did a skills assessment, helped him prepare a CV, and we connected him to a suitable job opening at a local security company. The team also helped prepare him for an interview and took him to meet the prospective employer. Chenda landed the job and is now receiving $140/month salary. He has reported back to us that even though it is not a high salary he is very proud to have a stable income now to support his family.
