ABOUT THE PODCOD PROGRAMPROMISE of DIGNITY through CAREER OPPORTUNITY DEVELOPMENT
“Promise of work is a gift for life.”
The PODCOD program aims to empower dignified lives through career development for those who are embattled with hardship due to factors beyond their control and deserve a helping hand, with the promise that they will give back to the cause once they reach their initial career goals.
For many people adverse life circumstances often impede chances to make a sustainable dignified living and to become productive and proud members of the community. AyZar Outreach’s PODCOD Program strives to reverse that trend one person at a time.
The program is aligned with the established four cornerstones:
Career development builds the foundation for lifelong success.
Perpetual and Self- Enduring
The program requires strict adherence to pre-defined results. Result orientation promotes success which fuels perpetuity by default as success breeds success.
The program has a payback built-in mechanism requiring commitment from recipients to give back to the cause over time in one capacity or another. As number of participants grow so will the pool of resources giving back, propelling perpetual growth and increasing number of lives impacted.
The program’s secret to success lies in the strength and magnitude of collaboration with partners contributing to the four pillars of career development.
