NEW COURSE

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.
