WHY SKILLS TRAINING?

For a long time, our communities have suffered at the hands of poverty which is a breeding ground for all other vices in Africa. Sickness & disease, hunger, corruption, illiteracy and homelessness are some of the vices which come as a direct result of poverty.

A lot of solutions both long and short term don't seem to help the situation because they don't address the root of the problem.  As a common proverb goes: "You give a poor man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach him to fish and you give him an occupation that will feed him for a lifetime," we identified the SKILLS TRAINING model as one of the most effective ways of empowering our communities.

Thru Creative Arts, we not only nurture the power and ability of each individual to express themselves but also use it as source of income.

Our Creative Art programs are wide enough to include fields like Painting, Recycling Art, Printmaking, Craftsmaking & Acting among others.

 

This is one of the most sought-after programs but also the most demanding in all spheres.

Through this program, we train our youths to harness the power of image-based story-telling not only to create awareness but also create jobs for them in the media world.

Based on Mark 16:15, "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature," we empower gospel ministers with skills to evangelize the world thru media.

As the end-time clock ticks, the race for the salvation of more souls is still on.  There's greater need to adapt to better methods and this program addresses just that. 

KidsArt is one of our foundational programs at Iris Mission Africa and because of the backgrounds of some of the Kids we deal with, it is a therapy to most of them

KidsArt does not only prepare the children for creativity but also engages their senses in open-end play, supports the development of their cognitive, social, emotional and multisensory skills.
