The vocational school, inaugurated in 2007 with support from the Rwanda Education and Discovery Committee (READ) of Saint John’s Anglican Church in Port Rowan, offers theoretical and practical courses in hairdressing, tailoring, welding, carpentry and construction. In 2017, a total of 73 students (35 female/38 male) attended training. Of these, 30 sponsored students had a meal a day, assistance for job apprenticeship placement and field training.
