In the past, Vocational Training Projects have been short term, part of a secondary school program, or subject to available teachers, equipment and facilities, or sponsoring youth to participate in 1/2 yearly training programs.
The future demands for this specialised training is huge as hundreds of HOPE School students, not well suited to higher tertiary studies, are growing up fast. Training in a vocation will be the best support we can offer for these more practically inclined youth.
While efforts on a small scale have been successful, we are now discussing ways to provide a much broader training opportunity for larger numbers of HOPE Primary School graduates through proposed facilities and short course programs at our HOPE Secondary School in Kabuga, Uganda.
We are have openned our first HOPE Secondary Vocational School, where practical technical studies are offered in short to medium term courses. The school is currently operating for a normal secondary education, but as funds are availble from donors, the vocational facilities will be established and commence operations.
