Only 39% of teens complete their secondary education in this community; strict Covid restrictions, closed schools and limited employment opportunities have resulted in a group of teens who have aged out of high school but have no skills to become gainfully employed. There are many young women who became pregnant during this time and are now single parenting small children. The ministry of PPU has identified the need and is mobilizing with the start up of a vocational training centre. Currently they are running a tailoring course for girls, and as further funding becomes available this would expand to include catering, carpentry and brick laying. The participants also receive parenting support and biblical teaching to help them become strong, responsible parents.
