New Admissions

The trade school is offering trades to the youth especially the needy.  Most of the youth in the community are primary school graduates and because of their backgrounds they never had the opportunity to join high school and even get skills to help them in their future lives.  This has affected the lives of many in the community and this increases the poverty in most households. The efforts in making a difference and bringing a lasting change in the lives are shuttered due to lack of education/skills.

The trade school has supported over 100 students in the last few years and most of them are self-employed and or   employed.  We have set up a sponsorship program supporting individual student and this has worked well in the last few years.  We have started admitting young girls who dropped out of school due to early pregnancy and had no chance to go back to school.  Most of the girls come from poor families and poverty contributes to what happened in their lives.

This program will be helping the girls and their children.  The baby care program care for their children while their mothers learn. We have dressmaking, hairdressing and catering.  This will give them an opportunity to help their children in future.

This year’s admissions have gone well, we have 20 students’ first year students.  WE have 13 who have gone for attachments and 10 2nd year students.  We don’t have enough dormitories and we are planning to construct a dormitory starting mid-year.  This will give room for more girls to come for the training.

Share with friends and families about our sponsorship program towards the youth and the benefits they get from the skills.  Learning keeps the youths busy and has highly contributed to behavior change.  This has brought peace and good security in the community.
