Vocational Training in Mnukwa, Zambia



The project started in 2011 with the building of 3 classrooms followed by a bore hole in 2012 and then the addition of solar panels in 2013. We are now building staff houses and supplying the centre with sewing machines, carpentry tools and bike repair kits. The community is isolated and this project is opening up new opportunities for them and engaging the young people in exciting new projects. The solar panels and lights will allow the adults access to the rooms in the evenings.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The challenges include organising the villagers and making them aware of the possibilities open to them. The project is providing new openings for them and is especially aimed at the teenagers and young adults who need to have the chance of embracing new skills. The lack of electricity and basic sanitation pose challenges.

How will this project solve this problem?

Having a bicycle repair centre will mean the trip to town becomes under an hour (at present a 4 hour walk), the sewing centre and carpentry room will mean opportunities to become more self sufficient. Having the solar lights means evening classes.

Potential Long Term Impact

They will have an income and should gain in confidence and be aware of what they can achieve.
