With the successes and advancements the young people have made in welding, brick making, beautician and sewing many more young people are asking to join in Vocational education, going on to apprenticeships and internships. Mugabo has finished his Welding apprenticeship and has been offered a position with a large manufacturer. In a photo below in the January Newsletter it shows him making metal windows.
Hairstyling is in much demand and the women who have completed their trade school and internships are busy with customers creating hair designs. Braiding is very popular as the women look very sharp and professional with their new hairdos.
The seamstresses have advanced and are making garments. PSA asked them to make uniforms for the Soccer team a paying job for them and the government of Rwanda has lifted the restrictions on sports. So the teams will soon be playing in competitions. In the newsletter you will see the project of blue uniforms being made.
The Rwandan government is encouraging women to try out for trade school professions that have been traditional male jobs. Claudine has been accepted into one of these classes.
