Another successful apprenticeship…

Anthony is a 20 year old orphan from Lenana. He graduated from high school but couldn’t afford any further formal education. When we first met him in November he was working as a casual labourer for a local carpenter, and living with and supporting his grandmother who raised him. We saw his determination, liked his attitude and felt we could help get him launched in a career.

Anthony is now happily apprenticing with a local tent and canvas company, getting the employable skills training he desperately wanted. Anthony is making the first 20 backpacks that we have ordered for our kids and they are proving more durable and cost effective. The business owner says Anthony is a natural and gets it! A Win Win!! Gotta like it!!!
