An engaging and simple activity involving schools, community and skilled workers in providing hands on ‘Try’aTrade’ opportunities. Includes an overview of a project and a “How-To” manual.
Showcases projects undertaken by young skills teams working with local communities in Zimbabwe, East Timor, Kenya and Cape York and gives a feel for the realities on the ground for organisations and individuals wishing to do something similar.
