Construction of VET center is 99% complete
Construction of the Vocational Education & Training (VET) center is 99% complete! The final step is the installation of water and sanitation facilities, for which we are currently comparing bids from local companies. We anticipate this will be completed by the summer’s end.
Our office, library, and tutoring classes will be moving into the building in the coming months. The VET will also house the Women’s Weaving Cooperative. The weavers can now set up their looms under cover, just as the rainy season begins.
The community is excited about their new space…and so are we! Thank you to everyone who donated to make this happen. In particular, we want to thank the people of the German Democratic Republic who, through a grant from the German Embassy in Monrovia, made construction of the VET possible. Vielen danken!
