Skills Development

One of our most ambitious goals is to develop and start up a Skills and Training Center at Pfunanane.  Due to significant individual hurdles such as fetal alcohol syndrome, extended malnutrition, and having missed years of basic education before entering our programs, many of our children struggle academically, and due to lack of financial means, most of the children at Pfunanane will never have an opportunity to attend college or a higher-level learning institution.  In order to prepare these children for adult life in a country with very limited job opportunities, it is critical that we establish a Skills Development Program which will prepare them for the future by teaching them a marketable skill or trade.
