Technical Skills for Life is an initiative whose mission is to offer free and certified training with the support of the Helvex Training Institute. With this we can support groups in vulnerable situations to obtain technical knowledge in plumbing installation and maintenance, which becomes a work tool for these people, resulting in improving their quality of life.
Plumbing First Responders for Women Program
Helvex created a special program for women in vulnerable situations, giving them tools to becoming certified plumbers and contributing to their personal and professional growth.
Samantha came to the Women's Plumbing Training at the worst stage of her life. She had decided to separate from her husband after a violent and abusive relationship, and she never imagined that this workshop would be the lifeline that would change her entire life.Samantha is now a certified plumber and works supplying materials for a major office building in Mexico City.
For Helvex Foundation, raising awareness among children and teenagers has become one of our main pillars, which is why through Xpress yourself we can promote, work and contribute to the awareness of water-saving, showing them the importance of forests and jungles as the main natural water factories.
In this program, children and teenagers are invited to generate ideas that respond to one of the following questions: How could you help to take care of water, How could you encourage others to take care of water, or What is the importance of taking care of water? Their ideas must be captured in a photograph or video for the participant to upload their work to social networks.
