Welding shop for youth vocational training in rural Uganda

 

In collaboration with engineering students from Virginia Tech, we recently set up a welding shop at Hope Academy. It is an effort to provide opportunities for youth in rural communities to acquire practical skills which enable them to create their jobs or seek meaningful employment. Unemployment in very in Uganda especially among the youth.

The welding lab is powered by a solar system installed by EWB-Virginia Tech as well.
