Many newly arriving refugees possess a resilient attitude and seek to become self-sufficient within months of resettling in their home. Despite their tenacious resolve, a majority of refugees lack transferrable skills that are in-demand in the US job market. Additionally, hostile homeland environments and / or natural disasters have made it difficult for many refugees and immigrants to obtain formal education, which further impedes their ability to obtain gainful employment.
To address this skill gap, Nile Sisters facilitates professional development and vocational training through its Back-to-Back (B2B) Skill Development program, a platform that prepares refugees and immigrants for employment in industries that are projected to grow in the region, such as healthcare.
Nile Sisters gratefully acknowledges a substantial investment from the John Krakauer Charitable Trust that will help us achieve our mission of providing B2B asset-building opportunities to several San Diego County refugees and immigrants.
