Vocational school project WOD-KAPEEKA 2020-08-01T09:43:34+01:00
Our children have to start learning a trade from an early age
Kids like Yusuf, Jude and Joy and many others came to us as children over 10 years ago. They were young, some of them still babes in arms. They have since gone on to become teenagers and young adults. They have learned reading, writing and arithmetic, but that is not enough to truly stand on their own two feet.
Vocational training will play a decisive role in their future, but where they live, there are at least 20 pupils for every apprenticeship.
This is why we are asking for your support in the building and running of a vocational school on the WOD grounds that are already available. What exactly does our project entail? In our analysis, the difference between availability of apprenticeships and demand is at its greatest in these areas:
carpentry and joinery, bricklaying, Computer Skills
with a solar based labaratory, painting, plumbing, electrical installation,
metalfabrication, motor vehicle mechanics, poultry,fishfarming,
beekeeping,tailoring,catering, hair dressing and computer repair. All the above
under DIT assessment
