Meet Hajira Rashid

Hajira Rashid is a Carpentry and Joinery student at Tingathe. Hajira had a passion for Carpentry and Joinery so when the opportunity to join Tingathe Training Program came, she jumped at the chance.

Through the program, Hajira has learned how to make chairs, and desks, construct roof frames, and install windows among other skills. Apart from acquiring skills in handwork, she has also learned entrepreneurial skills that she believes will help her become an entrepreneur when she graduates.

Upon completion of her studies, Hajira is not just being inspired to self-employment but also creating job opportunities for young people in her community to reduce the unemployment rate.
