  • Description

    A project for teaching school leavers skills in a wide range of trades is providing a great success in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Started two years ago with Japanese aid, it is known as the Cottage Industries Project.

    The project helps to fulfill the manpower needs of Tanzania, and those of any other developing country. At the centre, school leavers are taught such skills as woodwork, metal work, bamboo work, weaving and textile machinery operation, as well as a number of others.

    The pupils come from all over Tanzania, and attend the school for a year. After that they are ready for jobs in the construction and other allied industries.

    At the same time, the Tanzanian Government like to see a percentage of the successful pupils return to their villages to train other youngsters.

    The instructors come mainly from India, and the Indian Government has also donated several machines for the workshops.
