In Bangui, Central Africa Republic, many young girls get pregnant by the age of sixteen and young boys are driven to robbery because of poverty. Africa Missions North America stepped in to address this social problem by engaging the youths in Bangui in creative self-sustaining skills. A land was purchased and construction of the building consisting of four (4) classrooms, an administrative block and a block for toilets, was commissioned in February 2017. Grace Vocational Center was built to train and teach dressmaking and English language.
This purpose-built vocational facility situated in the Quartier Miskine on Avenue Mbaikoua, is the first of its kind in Bangui, Central African Republic. Since commissioning, classes have started in earnest for the first batch of students enrolled in the center. Classes run for both English and Dressmaking under the supervision of well-trained instructors.
