The objective of the program is to establish a beauty care and make up training course and provide disadvantaged adolescent young women with employable skills and job placement support. In addition the program focusses on providing work skills and finding jobs by providing vocational training in Food & Beverages, Sales & Marketing, Nail Art, Web & Graphic Design, and Hairdressing for disadvantaged young people.
