Training into Work Programme

During 2015 we aim to train at least 80 new builders, from disadvantaged rural and urban communities. This will give them the skills they need to earn a living and provide for their families.


Skills Training

Men and women from the local community learn basic construction skills whilst building essential infrastructure for their community. They take a nationally recognised trades exam in bricklaying.

Qualification and Tool Kits

Follow-up Support

Our support continues with post-training activities and workshops that will increase graduates skills and ability to secure work. Some graduates will go on to build houses and latrines on Build It projects.

Mwala Community School
