Just received word today that Dr. Komuesa is prepared to start the first technical trade school at Tshikapa. He has secured a license and location for the school. Anticipated start date is September of this year 2009. The initial focus will be with carpentry and masonry. He is planning on 15 students for each section.
We are in the process of gaining more specific information as we move forward with this effort. The long term goal is to establish a minimum of five such schools located through out the AIMM ministry regions.
The Graber initiative has committed to raising funds to equip the schools with the necessary tools and equipment.
