Vocational Training

Skills for Success, Hope for Tomorrow

2024 Goals

This year, our goal is to raise $10,000 to expand our vocational training programs in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Vocational training provides underserved youth with practical skills and hands-on experience, paving the way for immediate employment opportunities and career advancement. By focusing on specific trades and professions relevant to the North Kivu, DRC region, vocational programs equip young people with the tools needed to secure stable, well-paying jobs, reducing unemployment rates and fostering economic independence. Additionally, these programs often offer a supportive learning environment, promoting confidence, self-reliance, and a sense of achievement. By bridging the gap between education and employment, vocational training empowers underserved youth to build brighter futures and contribute positively to their communities. 

Join our efforts of empowering the orphans we support to become self-sufficient.

Computer Program

The Computer Literacy Program was launched in 2018 and currently has 20 children enrolled.

They are learning to use Microsoft office and how to navigate the internet to increase their administrative skills. These skills will help them either gain employment or start their own business. 

Children who complete the program will have the skills to offer classes to the general public thus charge a small fee to help cover their daily expenses and personal needs.

Sewing Program

The Sewing Program was launched in 2017. Funds raised during our Empowered Fashion Show Fundraisers allowed us to purchase sewing machines, necessary tools and materials. The children in Goma made clothing that were worn during the event.


The orphanage has 10 sewing machines with a goal of getting them 20 machines. There are 20 children currently enrolled in the sewing program. 

Agricultural Program

In the spring of 2019, we received an anonymous donation to purchase a plot of land to help grow food for the children. We decided to not only grow food, but also teach the children a very useful skill. Over 20 children are enrolled in our Agriculture program where they are learning how to raise crop and livestock.

In September of 2019, they enjoyed their first harvest! That first batch covered one meal for half the children. We hope to purchase an additional small plot of land to increase crop output.
