We would like to acknowledge our supporters. Our supporters undertaken to contribute in a variety of ways. Some of the supporters’ function is to validate components of the course. Others may choose to disseminate the outputs, whereas certain supporters will use the materials as part of their day-to-day activities. In addition, many supporters are field experts who lend their moral support endorsing the need for the project.

We hope that our supporters will contribute to ensuring that the products and outputs will be relevant, used within VET and represent the needs as identified within the project aims. All of our supporters have furnished letters of support and endorsement emphasizing the need for a project such as JUSTISIGNS.
