Apprentice workshops


The realization of this project has as origin an alarming level of school desertion after the primary years, in order to go back to survival agriculture along with the parents.

Our organization offers to the 16 year-old and upwards apprentice workshops besides their proper schooling. We seek to motivate young people to explore new professional fields, which correspond to their abilities, thereby increasing their family income and creating new jobs in the community.

An institution of professional training at national level supplies us logistics and teachers.

Sessions of professional orientation have taken place in Santa Barbara. They gave the possibility of setting up workshops of twenty apprentices each, of bakers, of tailors and of computer operators, in addition to a course in industrial welding for seven outstanding students issued from secondary school.
