At Dorcas Vocational School, teenagers who are orphaned or considered are able to learn practical skills that will serve them in the real world. The students learn many things from tailoring and weaving homegoods to cooking and agriculture, as well as business skills and spiritual growth. Right now, the girls of Dorcas are located in one building on a hill in Kaihura, while the boys are located on ten acres of farmland in the nearby village of Kyongera.
This year, Know Think Act will begin focusing more on improving conditions at Dorcas Vocational School. Katie Sasser and I had a great meeting with the principal of Dorcas, Georgina. Georgina is eager to improve curriculum, facilities, and staff at the school. I’m confident that Katie & Georgina will work to make great change within the community in the coming years. To sit in on these initial meetings and planning stages for the future of Dorcas is very exciting – I wish I could share all the ideas with you right now!
Keep an eye out for Dorcas’ needs on Know Think Act in the coming months and rejoice in the future of these teachers and students. What an exciting time it is!
