TechPro2 Iveco Arrives in Ethiopia
The TechPro2 Ethiopia (Technical Professional Programme), a training course that 20 young students from the Bosco Children Centre in Addis Ababa, will undergo in the next nine months, was inaugurated on Saturday 7 December thanks to an initiative by Iveco and New Holland Construction.
The project, launched in 2008 as a result of the positive experience of similar initiatives in other areas of the Group, lays the foundations for student specialisation in the automotive sector, with a specific professional development programme for the industrial vehicles sector. The students involved will have the opportunity to learn a trade at school, attending a course that will provide them with a valuable professional retraining tool at the end of the course of studies.
The Bosco Children Centre is a home built by the Don Bosco Salesian Order with the objective of reducing the problem of street children in the Ethiopian capital, by accommodating them in a comfortable structure. More than 350 children and adolescents, of which 160 are full-time, have found a place in the Centre, where they have the opportunity to prepare themselves for entry into society.
The official presentation was attended by the Ethiopian Minister of Education, the Director of the Ministry of Education, the Ambassador of Italy in Addis Ababa, as well as numerous local authorities, Mauro Veglia, Vice President CNH Industrial, Commercial Services and Customer Care Director and Daniela Ropolo, CNH Industrial EMEA and APAC Sustainability Director were present on behalf of CNH Industrial.
