“The Episcopal Technological and Vocational Training Centre (ETVTC) is thrilled to announce the receipt of a significant grant of $54,000 from the United Thank Offering UTO). The funds will be dedicated to initiatives aimed at uplifting the quality of life for prisoners and their families, and advancing their successful reintegration into the community.
“The grant from UTO presents an unprecedented opportunity for us to deliver impactful programs that directly address the challenges faced by prisoners and their families,” said ETVTC Director Giovanni Anbar. “Our commitment is to empower these individuals, equipping them with the necessary tools to become active and contributing members of their communities.”
The grant will support a three-fold approach:
1) Improve the well-being of prisoners and their families through the development of comprehensive support programs. This will address both the immediate and long-term challenges faced by families of incarcerated individuals.
2) Foster greater community integration of prisoners by creating platforms and initiatives that encourage societal engagement. This would involve collaborative efforts with local organizations to support the transition of these individuals back into society.
3) Enhance employment prospects for prisoners by offering tailored vocational training courses. These courses will align with the demands of the Palestinian labor market, ensuring the skills learned are immediately applicable and beneficial to the growth of the local economy.
ETVTC believes that this initiative will pave the way for a transformative change, bringing about a new era of opportunity for prisoners and their families in Palestine.
“We are immensely grateful to UTO for their generosity and faith in our mission. Together, we aim to forge a path toward social and economic inclusion for our program beneficiaries,” concluded the ETVTC Director”
