The LLK Vocational Training College

Now that the elementary school - grades 1 through 8 - has been built and the kindergarten has been built - and the modern kitchen with its fabulous dining / multi-purpose hall has been built - and last but not least, the administration building with its offices for the project manager and social workers, day health clinic and library has been built - What's next?

Well, not everybody has the capacity to go to high school and university.  Most of the children on the Live and Learn in Kenya International program graduate from 8th grade and then go on to learn a trade. It is not always easy to find the right school for the right child. Some of the schools just aren't what they are supposed to be and the youth ends up with a certificate of completion, but without the full knowledge of the trade, he or she has spent the past 2 or 3 years learning. So we are taking it upon ourselves once again to make sure that this is changed by building our own vocational training college.

We began construction 4 weeks ago. The construction is coming along nicely, but we are still not certain of the number of classrooms we should build. Our original plan was to build 4 classrooms/workshops for tailors, hairdressers, mechanics, and IT. But the more we consider the future, the more necessary it seems to consider a second floor so that we can also train welders and carpenters and perhaps two other trades. Not only would we be able to train more youths to be able to stand on their own feet and one day be able to feed, clothe and educate their own children - we see the trade school as a future income for the Live and Learn in Kenya Education Center. People will be able to come to our school to have their cars repaired and painted, have furniture built, clothing sewn, their hair done and much more - and the income from that will go towards the upkeep of the Center!

But it is very expensive and we'll need all the support we can get to make this LLK dream come true. But 2021 is going to be a good year!

Let the magic begin :)
