These are the first batch of participants to use the new Community Learning Center funded by the Nupmo Women and Children Association.

This is part of life skills training under the OTDF Community Development Program.

These 17 women received technical certificates, recognized by the National Department of Education through the Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET) Program.

Kiunga Vocation trainer Mrs. Helen Dupnai encouraged the women to go out and share the skills gained, above all to sell to earn an income and support their family.

OTDF Manager Program Services Sustainable Development Mr. Andrew Mari congratulated the participants for their achievement, in addition, encouraged the women to support each other to develop the community.

“You are the role models of your community, ask yourselves what legacy you would want to be remembered by” Mr. Mari added.

More trainings are expected to be held in the new learning center.
