Thousands of young people complete primary school and leave to go to cities or villages each year. Our experience after working with young people since 1978 is that these potentially talented young people stay at home for only one year and after that they are bored and feel the need to do something or go elsewhere especially to cities looking for jobs. Of course this can have a negative impact on their lives as they don’t get employed because they are not trained. Mission to Youth and Students New Life Ministries is establishing a secondary school and vocational training centre that will provide quality education and teach different trades to give these young people an opportunity to develop their talents and put themselves in a position of being employed or employ themselves.

The secondary school is been built in Kisongo ward,  Engorora village and we started with six classrooms and more classrooms and dormitories for girls and boys will be constructed as funds come in. We hope to finish phase one of this much needed institution in 2016 where the school will have 480 students of which 60% will be girls and only 40% boys. Why more girls than boys? The answer is for decades in African tradition girls were denied opportunities to go to school. They just stay home, get married and take care of babies and family. For us we decided to break this bad tradition by giving more opportunity to girls knowing that when you educate a girl you have educated the whole family. The school and vocational training is built on a piece of land of 23 acres and our goal is that it will grow up to 1000 students when its fully built in phase two in 2018.
