Vocational Training

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 their volume.

SEWING PROGRAM

The Sewing Program was launched in 2017. Funds raised during our first Empowered Fashion Show Fundraiser, allowed us to purchase 3 sewing machines and materials. The children in Goma made clothing that were worn during the event. There are over 15 children enrolled in the sewing program. Learn more about the events here:

COMPUTER TRAINING 

The Computer Training Program was launched in 2018 and currently has 10 10 children enrolled.

 

They're learning to use Microsoft office to increase their Administrative skills.

AGRICULTURAL PROGRAM

In the spring of 2019, we received an anonymous donation to purchase a small 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 Agricultural 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 their volume. 

2020 GOAL

This year, our goal is to raise $20,000 to purchase a small building, an additional small plot of land, desks, chairs, sewing machines and additional supplies to expand our three Vocational Training Programs.


Currently, space is either donated (if available) once a week or rented twice a week to run the programs. By providing them their own space, the orphanage will have a secure location to not only store all the machines/equipment but also they can increase the frequency of classes offered.

We hope you join us in leaving a positive mark in these children's lives.
