Our focus is to support the personal, social and professional development of each individual. We hope to increase quality, efficiency and effectiveness in the job market; augment income in a sustainable way; and create self-confidence, autonomy and skill sets that extend across various vocations.
We support networks of stakeholders involved in vocational and professional training, job prospection and placement, and job creation. They seek to increase education levels, reskill workers and build connections, to increase employment. Since 2010, through the networks, AKF has supported more than 17,000 people in Lisbon, Sintra and Oeiras to access training and secure better and longer-term employment.
This work has resulted in a ready-to-use employability network implementation guide - please email email@example.com to request it.
We are closing the gap between existing skills and job market requirements by developing young people’s soft, technical and digital skills. This strengthens their capacity to become more competitive in the job market.
We support cooperatives of migrant crafts, arts and service producers by creating a collective brand, placing cultural heritage products in the market and reducing the length of economic circuits.
