Any ex-convict or ex-drug user-dealer will find it hard to get a decent job. This is what the campaign is all about : creating employment for reformed individuals as they re-enter the society. THE SECOND LIFE
The project was conceived in the midst of Philippine government's efforts against Drug Trafficking. There are now at least 900,000 drug pushers and users who turned themselves in. The government's program is to rehabilitate them, a good plan. But after the rehab , the "second life" , the reformed men and women are jobless or not having a good-paying job , so the chance of getting back to the old dirty business is very high.
Specifically , the employment opportunity I'd like to share is in the Dog Care and Training business. I am a Professional Canine Behaviorist. I have authored three books "Dog-life Balance" , "Do Dogs Dream (nananaginip ba ang aso? -in Filipino) , and "Dog Ownership is No Joke (Mag Aso Ay D Biro -in Filipino). For reference : http://www.central.com.ph/bookstoreplus/authordeta... . My website : www.traildogs.ph . I speak in universities , government agencies and other institutions.
The training program will take 24 weeks. The objective is to teach the "second-lifer" how to train Basic Obedience on dogs. Each candidate will go through theoretical and practical exercises. A certification and endorsement will be awarded to those who will complete and pass the course.
The course will also include Work Ethics , Moral Values, and Customer Service - I'd like to have each graduate to be a professional.
I need funds for the training facility, manpower , and operational expenses. The Second Life course will be offered FREE to ex-con and ex-drug dealers/users , I could not find any local company or organization to support this charity. I need your help . Let us give them the second life they deserve.
