The last three years have been very successfull and we have been able to see more than 30 students graduate from the trade school. We have been offering Automotive Mechanic course, Building and Construction course and Dressmaking Tailoring course. Within the Building and contruction students are able to learn carpentry, plumbing and electification.
Many girls who are talented in hairdressing have not been able to get an opportunity at our school since we didnt have the facilities and equipment to offer the course. This year we have introduced the hairdressing course which has seen many girls join the trade school. We have students who had enrolled in dressmaking and have changed to hairdressing since it is their passion.
Currently we have 23 students who are out for attachment and we have 20 new admissions. We are proud to say that our school is the best in practical exams and we are looking forward to becoming a centre for exams this year. This will also give us an opportunity to upgrade to technical school where we can offer more courses and have more students.
We are also putting up a production department and we have put in place a knitting machine which we are hoping to start very soon working on the school cardigans. We are working hard to make the centre to be sustain itself through the production unit. It is our humble prayer that you will continue to support the construction of the workshops and equiping the school with the needed equipments to enable us achieve this goal. Sponsoring an needy youth is also going on and we welcome your support towards the needy and orphaned youths by giving them a second chance.
It is because of you all that the Vocational Training Centre is where it is. We continue to encourage you to share with friends and families about this cause and lets teach our youths how to fish.

It is four years since the trade school was officially opened its doors for the students. We enrolled 23 students who did their exams in 2015 which was also our first exam as an institution. Currently we have 20 students, 12 did their National exam this month of November and are now waiting for their results which will come out next year. This has been achieved through your support and through the sponsorship program that was invented to give the youth a second chance in life.
We are still working on the construction and we haven’t started building the administration block. We have managed to complete the two new workshops and one will serve as a boarding facility for the girls. The dormitories are also needed for both girls and boys which will enable us get students from far away. Walking distance for the youth is very long, they walk up to 4 kilometers to and from the school every day. This also interferes with their studies as they arrive late at the institution which affects their lessons.
We are very grateful for the donations towards the construction of the workshops and it is our prayer that you will share widely with friends and family members about this noble cause. Sharing what you are doing in the lives of the youth will surely make a difference and we will be able to help more in the community.
The achievement is huge! All the students have changed in behavior and are seeing the other side of life which is different from what they knew, failure. YOU have not only their lives but the community in general.

The trade School was closed for school holiday throughput the month of August. It has been a long month in our country because of elections and there have been no activities at the school. However Students have been busy preparing for exams which are to come in two months time and others have been preparing for job attachments. Next semester that is starting in September will be our recruitment for new students.
We have seen a big difference in the lives of our previous students and in the community in general Most of the youth are willing to go back to study since they have seen the change in their friends' lives most of the have been motivated and have seen the impotence of having skills. This is because some of the previous students have started working in some trade schools and others are continuing with their studies. Everything in their lives has changed, how they present themselves, how they dress and above all their behavior. This isalso bringing peace in the community since most of the youths have become hopeless due to their backgrounds, dropping out of school due to lack of school fees, loosing parents and other things that have affected their future
Through Global Giving you have reinstated the lives of more than 50 youths in this community and YOU have motivated more youths, their eyes are now open Through your efforts and support towards their tuition and welfare, building of classes and workshops, YOU have brought light where there was darkness As we are recruiting new students this semester consider sharing with friends the wonderful work you are doing in the lives of the orphaned and needy. Touching a life is like a tattoo, you can't just erase it! Give your families, youths and friends an opportunity to make a difference!
