The poverty cycle is perpetuated when poorer communities lack educational training, and in turn, have limited earning potential. This cycle leads to malnutrition, and social problems. Humanity First, in an effort to alleviate this crisis, has opened several vocational training centres in Burkina Faso, Sierra Leone, Binin, Ghana and Gambia. These centres provide basic and advanced computer training. Programs such as garment design and tailoring have also been specifically designed for women. As a result, many students have successfully found employment in their field.
