The VHP-sponsored Duchity Vocational Training Center opened for classes last month; some class pics appear below. CLICK HERE to read more about the hard work and long-term planning that went into the opening of the center.
The Duchity Vocational Training Center is up and running! Classes are under way but, of course, construction and development continues. VHP board member Kimball Butler is in Duchity and yesterday filed this first hand look at the program in operation:
All is well albeit a little too cool for my liking. Weather has been cooperating except today- downpours on and off with small breaks in between. We did manage to get in a rock-carrying brigade with several local kids, youth and adults. Moving a large pile from the back 40 to just inside the wall. These rocks are Heavy! Anouse, Despagne, Jode and Jean Fenel are amazingly strong men- I can attest to this by seeing the size rocks hey were able to heft and carry!
Rocks are for the foundation of the space/shelter Bos Fritzner is creating for the welders to work. They have been working in a large tent but the tent is needed for the English class which is very large. The welders are still making desk chairs as well as doing side jobs for people in the community needing repairs of various things.
