Current Needs
  • We need sponsors for the school who will partner with us financially over the next three years.
  • Our auto mechanics instructor is expecting to come to the States this summer to promote the ministry of the school. At the same time he will visit vocational educational institutions which will broaden his vision for vocational education.
  • We are developing plans to set up production facilities for the school. We are building a service center for the auto mechanics department. The sewing students will be involved in producing polo shirts.
