Improving people’s quality of life, especially those from marginalized and underserved communities is critical to achieving social improvement and sustainable growth. It is important for them to have the skills needed to advance in present economies, the freedom to live and work in safe and healthy environments and a voice to secure basic human needs. Our work in human development are strongly tied to inclusive and sustainable development. We focus on promoting vocational education, advancing basic education, improving public health and ensuring social protection.
ASSIST’s vocational education work focuses on developing the labour market by equipping workers with green skills and ensuring that workplace practices, operations and management comply with environmental, health and safety standards. In public health, we use technology to increase people’s awareness on specific health issues like adolescent reproductive health and mosquito borne diseases. We also improve marginalized sectors’ access to social protection through awareness raising interventions for all stakeholders and through research studies. We are also constantly involved in improving basic education by supplementing the curriculum with topics that we think need to be taught such as, disaster risk reduction and management.
Our work directly results in human development, improving people’s quality of life while achieving sustainable development.
