Federal government housing intervention program, Family Homes Funds has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Construction Skills Training and Empowerment Project Ltd/Gte C-STEMP, an organization with a vision to build a pool and database of certified artisans with the requisite skills to meet industry needs that translate to better quality of work and life for all stakeholders. As part of our commitment to provide affordable housing and jobs, Family Homes Funds will be working with developers to create vocational jobs and empowerment programs and products for low to medium-income earners currently in or potentially interested in building a career in the construction trades. As part of this empowerment program, the FHFL recognizes the need to incorporate training, assessment and certification as a condition for beneficiaries to access its programs and to ensure that only skilled labour is utilized on its projects. We believe it is not enough to supply houses without taking care of the demand side. It is also important that lives are touched through job creation, which is part of our mandate as Family Homes Funds.
