A key project of the Rotary Club of Shanghai is the Careers in Care program that provides migrant workers with new skills to care for the elderly. After attending the course, trainees receive a certificate that can help them find work in homes and elderly care facilities. As a result, the Project not only helps provide employment, but adds skilled people to the workforce so helping to provide a much needed pool of expertise to assist the professional care industry to grow and prosper.
To date, the project has trained more than 2,700 people and has made a positive impact on the lives of more than 500,000 people. To date, the Rotary Club of Shanghai has provided funds and support so that more than 4,000 migrant workers were trained in care giving skills. We estimate that this work has had a positive impact on the lives of nearly 800,000 people. View our video to learn more.
