Unlocking Potential with Vocational Training

Kagadi in Bunyoro Sub Region Uganda, is an area which has been scarred and impoverished by years of poverty, where children rarely go to school.

An entire generation of young people who missed out on their education face high levels of youth unemployment and limited opportunity.

A hope-filled future

The Vocational Training Institute is helping transform Kagadi by providing the opportunity of new skills and employment to hundreds of young people and adults. The Vocational Training Institute is founded on Christian values and will contribute significantly to fostering a skills-based economy by producing job creators, not just job seekers.

This student-centred environment has excellent teaching, pastoral care, trauma counselling and mentoring that promotes the health and well-being of vulnerable young people. Students are equipped with vocational skills in a holistic, Christian environment which will enable them to flourish both professionally and spiritually. They are given the opportunity to realise their potential and earn a living so they can support their families.
