What approach YM-TAT does the project use when hiring laborers?
Regardless of the job position, all applicants must undergo an assessment process. For laborers (unskilled and semi-skilled), we consider work location and hire laborers from nearby villages/locations. The demand for semi-skilled job positions for the project is limited. The project cannot employ all laborer and semi-skilled job applicants. The technical assessment of laborer and semi-skilled job positions is simple and covers some of the following criteria:
- - Must know reading and writing (in Swahili)
- - Can listen, understand, and follow the instruction of the assessors
- - Can understand basic mathematics (four operations) and numbers
- - Can understand directions, and so on.
