Gulu, Northern Uganda, is an area which has been scarred and impoverished by years of brutal conflict, where children were kidnapped and forced to become child soldiers. These former child soldiers are now young adults, many of them suffering the trauma of their childhood, many of them with their own children.
The Vocational Training Institute is helping transform this post-conflict area by providing the opportunity of new skills and employment to hundreds of young people. 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.
