Vocational University Plans

Orphans Foundation Fund has made conceptual architectural plans for the Vocational University for orphans and vulnerable children. What we want to build would distinguish itself by it’s name, design, educational training system, equipment, teachers, and international support so that youth may be trained in various trades¬† and make them to become self reliant. We want to make a model for all other VTCs in the country to look up to and follow. You can help make this dream possible, please contact us. Click on the below photos to see the larger photos.
