Today marks the commencement of the “kick off workshop” of the Global Program organized by Don Bosco Tech Africa (DBTA). This program is sponsored by the German Government through its Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development in partnership with Don Bosco Mondo – Bonn Germany and DBTech Africa. It is currently taking place in Nairobi, Kenya.
The Nigerian Delegation of AFW is participating in the meeting through the Office of the Provincial Technical Vocational Education and Training (PTVET) Manager – Rev Fr John Paul Uchendu (Sdb) who is being represented by the National Job Service Officer (N-JSO). The PDO Coordinator of the antenna of Lagos – Rev Fr Maximus Okoro (Sdb) and the Training Director of John Bosco Institute of Technology (JOBITECH) Onitsha – Rev Fr Samuel Agudosi (Sdb) are also in attendance.
The Global Program consists of five main pillars which are:
– Capacity building
– Job Service Office
– Green TVET
It is expected that this program will greatly improve the quality and effectiveness of TVET delivery in our Training Centers, build a cleaner and greener environment and create jobs for our young people.
We appreciate the German Government, Don Bosco Mondo and and DB Tech Africa for this laudable initiative.
