Training and equipping skill workers will make it possible for reconstruction to occur in surrounding the villages.

Describe the primary goal of the project.

Provide competent and well trained graduates to employ their skills in the Central Congo. Each student upon graduation receives the tools needed for their trade so they can begin to work in their communities as soon as possible.
