For more than a year now, we've felt led to branch out and add a new facet to our ministry. We're starting a Trade School!
We see the difference that education can make in the lives of young people, through our years of working with Instituto El Rey, village elementary schools, and our After School Program . But we've also seen that the majority of young people never make it either to 6th grade or beyond in school. We feel like we need to take a dramatic step of faith to give local young people more options for post primary education. The most practical step for us to take is to offer classes in specific trades.
