“when you help a child, you are helping to look after an entire family.”
A village Elder from Kitelera
An old proverb says ‘Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime’
That village elder knows nothing of old proverbs, but he does know the reality of life in Africa.
At kids4school we provide training for children that will not make it, for various reasons, academically. We provide courses that will help children not only support themselves but their respective families.
We will expand the courses offered as and when the new kids4school school is built and brought into operation. These will include things like carpentry, bricklaying, electrical, plumbing and many more.
Welding & Sewing
We have already provided courses in welding and sewing and these will be ongoing. At our new recently constructed Vocational Training Centre
we have in place 2 sewing instructors who are running training courses for young people in preparation to setting them up in business or able to get a job. We are now in the planning of setting up a dedicated welding training unit, again to train young people to become self-sufficient and able to help their families.
