YOUTH VOCATIONAL CENTER
One of the largest issues in rural Tanzania is being dependent on rain for crops to grow and for vegetation for livestock to eat. When Tanzanians experience a drought, many families face starvation because farming is their only source of income and food.
In 2018 AFTN was made aware by local pastors in Tanzania the need to build a vocational center to educate students coming out of high school in a skill or trade. This learned skill would empower them to have a job and to earn an income aside from farming.
AFTN is actively building a facility that will provide the youth of Tanzania an education resulting in confidence, peace and a way to make a living.
The vocational center will teach English and skills such as Construction Trades; i.e. Masonry (block building, beam construction), Plumbing (water/sewer lines, septic), Electrical (residential/commercial wiring), and Computer skills, Sewing, and Transportation.
