Summary

The Wisdom Vocational College is for Students with physical and mental disabilities. There are 70 boarders at any one time who live at the college 24/7. Students range from 12 years old up to 25 years. Once they are 25, they must leave the College. This project looks at supporting the college by improving the sanitation and classroom facilities. The project will also look at ways to improve how the young people are living at the college.

Challenge

The college has minimal facilities and most of the students families are not in a position to pay fees and support the college. The infrastructure is dated and in need of renovation. In relation to the unhygienic latrines, one must walk or in some cases, slide down a long hill. Students who cannot walk have to wake others at night to help them get there and even then, it is often too late. Then there is nowhere to wash their hands and feet post using a latrine.

Solution

This project will improve the learning and living environment of the young people at the college. Improved nutrition and learning facilities will assist them in focusing on skills acquisition in a more productive way. New sanitation facilities will allow for a more dignified way of life for the young people who are already marginalised in so many ways. Support to the sisters running the college will also improve their morale and how they work with the young people.

Long-Term Impact

The project will support improved education and skills for the young people. When they have to leave the college at 25 years of age they should be in a better position to be more independent. Now they will have the skills to assist them in having a livelihood and means of survival for themselves.
