Maher is an innovative, unique and sustainable program that we are currently delivering to the areas of adult education and employability. Kafel Aid works collaboratively with local organisations in order to build their capacity and share expertise. Maher aims to help Eritrean refugees to acquire well-respected essential qualifications in order to explore talents, pave away of professional skills, decrease the unemployment within refugees; particularly amongst youths who desperately fight for their basic human rights and their dignity. We are specialised in arranging, alongside local charities in Sudan and Yemen, tailored training in various fields such as Diesel Automotive Engineering, Leather Products, Mobile Engineering, and Catering.
These programs are not only significant and beneficial for refugees and their families’ lives, but it has also extended their impact to the residents of the country that is hosting the refugees. Refugees have dreams and inspirations of being productive people, the abandonment of such basic rights will inevitably lead them to depart and migrate to different countries. Maher project empowers the working youth of Eastern Sudan refugees and cultivates future professionals.

Training Young Refugees in Electrician and Blacksmithing
January 2019 Kafel Aid delivered a diploma course in Electrician and Blacksmithing in Kassala east Sudan. The aim for this project is to empower young refugees who live in a very risky area. 25 Eritrean refugees benefited from this training and hopefully the vocation training will make positive impact in their life and their families.
Training project in repairing mobiles
December 2018 with the help of Allah, Kafel Aid provided vocational training in mobile engineering under Maher Program where 15 males and females completed this training as a first stage and was followed by training another 10 refugees.
April 2016 as part of Maher program, 30 young graduates accomplished Diploma in Automotive engineering and 10 girls have successfully achieved qualifications in Leather products.
Mobile Maintenance Training Programs
By the help of Allah Subhanahu Wa Taala, Kafel Aid provided two consecutive vocational training projects in mobile engineering aimed to train 50 young refugees in order to alleviate their needs by helping them gain the necessary skills to start decent career in cell phone industry. The courses were designed to help new technicians master all levels of Mobile Phone and walk away with the knowledge and practical skills to immediately establish their own businesses.
April 2016, Kafel Aid established the fourth campaign in Eritrean refugees’ camps in Sudan to treat eye diseases and make surgeries to patients.
Kafel Aid Provided treatment to 1,000 patients and carried out surgeries to remove cloudiness for more than 100 people.
We are now working together with our partners in Sudan to launch new eye treatment campaigns
MyProject is another vital project which is an auxiliary and an extension to the aforementioned program (Maher). It is designed to assist Eritrean Refugees in setting-up micro-economic projects which will help them to come out of the cycle of poverty. That will also enable them to have access to food, clean water, and decent shelter. In this program, we intend to support refugees with practical experience and skills regardless of colour, race, and religion to establish projects that they can initiate and establish their businesses themselves with their families. We summarise these projects in the following:
Providing sewing machines to women
Giving basic machines and tools to automotive engineers
Assisting refugees to acquire machines for leather products purposes
Helping individuals to possess water transport bullock carts
Providing various machines to commence businesses
Giving Cattle breeds to the farmers
We respectfully would like to urge other organisations to follow our footstep in these models as we believe that a feasible and sustainable project will help a refugee rely on themselves in making their livelihood, supporting their families and building brighter future rather than relying on charities.
