Hope Africa in vocational skills’ drive


Hope Africa (HA), a Christian International Organisation operating in Chikwawa District, has announced plans to open vocational training centres for the youth.

Speaking In an interview, HA Project Coordinator, Charles Balala, said youth in rural areas need vocation training centres where they can acquire different skills after completing secondary education.

“Every organisation should know that there are thousands of youngsters who completed their secondary education but, due to financial problems, they do not go further with their studies. They cannot even venture into business due to lack of capital and knowledge,” Balala said.


Balala disclosed that plans are at an advanced stage to open three vocational centres in traditional authorities (T/A) Maseya, Chapanga and Sub- T/A Masache in Ngabu where youth will sharpen skills in carpentry and joinery, tailoring, agri-business and tinsmith.

Hope Africa has trained over 30 youth in tailoring skills in 2016 alone with help from well-wishers based in Canada.
