Our children have to start learning a trade from an early age

Kids like Kalungi, Joy, Melissa 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 Kids of Africa 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 five areas:

  • Woodwork: joiners and carpenters
  • Metalwork: locksmiths and plumbing
  • Mechanics
  • Agriculture
  • Hospitality

Making sure youngsters have access to vocational training

Good training in these particular trades is doubly sustainable. In the future, it will enable up to 400 youngsters to get all the help they need to help themselves, since the children in our protection will one day soon stand on their own two feet – for themselves and for their families. We believe that vocational training of this kind provides incredible added value for the population and for the children involved.
We also believe that, based on our experience with our highly successful primary school, that a good vocational school can run itself in a self-sustaining way after two-to-three years.

Running a good vocational school is a very important project for us.

To make this initiative a reality, we need your help. And we have broken down the procurement into smaller steps, so that donors have a better idea of what building the school will cost.
