Vocational Training for a Teenager
Not all of our students are meant for the academic life. Some struggle for years, and want to drop out. We encourage them to finish at least until the end of Primary 7, so they will have the basic skills, and then we work with them to find a vocational program that works for them. Sometimes there is a time lag, and their sponsor gets assigned a different child. We need donors to help us pay for vocational school tuition so that these students can get a good start on a practical career. Vocational programs include tailoring, knitting, hairdressing, catering, mechanical, secretarial, carpentry.
