The important field of TVET is an essential element in reducing rural poverty but has been put aside for many years by policy makers, donors and the private sector. On one side, this resulted in a general neglect which is evident in the lack of technical expertise and crafts people at all levels. On the other side, There is a multitude of training and capacity building initiatives that provide only short term solutions and cannot circumvent the larger problem of low levels of education and persistent illiteracy. Many of these initiatives might be well-intended, but often do not produce the results desired. There is a non-respect of basic principles of adult education and a lack of coordination between private and public providers. Too often training does not address the needs of target groups nor anticipate how the training skills will be set to use. The lack of attention to employability leads to a situation where a lot of resources are being wasted. The Integrated Skills Outreach Program is one such example of a TVET programme to the unskilled people.

The high unemployment rates in the rural areas call for the empowerment of both the young and old on survival skills. This will help them to participate in the informal economy for their livelihoods. Informal jobs offer valuable opportunities for young unskilled workers in terms of skill acquisition and career advancement. To be specific, they serve as a stepping stone to formal jobs, which offer better conditions in terms of pay, insurance, job security, and other amenities at work. Although the existence of a large informal sector may distort tax collection and reduce productivity, informal job opportunities may in fact be welfare enhancing for the young and unskilled workers in developing countries, because these jobs help workers gain expertise and build professional networks for improving their career prospects. Integrated Skills Outreach Programme is one TVET way of equipping rural populations with skills to fend for themselves.
