PODA has a vision of creating a variety of vocational training opportunities for the students and for the community. One such program would be a four year woodworking program at the school. Students would start the program in S1 (our grade seven) and continue through to S4 (our grade 10).
There is a woodworker within the local community who is interested in helping us implement this program. The curriculum would include classroom learning as well as practical application. The majority of the skills learned would be with hand tools. Access to power can be intermittent and power tools are very expensive and difficult to acquire and repair.
We are looking for seed funding to start this program so we can buy sets of tools and other supplies.
