Barceló Foundation and Jesuit Association of Chad are building an Institute of Primary, Secondary Education and Vocational Training in Kyabé, for 800 students, by 2022.
In the first phase, developed in 2018, 4 classrooms were built, an administrative block, toilets for students and teachers, the security fence of the enclosure, a house for the guard and, finally, a water well with deposit included, a generator and a photovoltaic station to provide electricity to the entire educational complex.
Only a few weeks ago the works of the second phase were completed, carried out this 2019 with an investment of 132,294 euros, which have consisted of the construction of a 2-storey building that will house 8 primary classrooms.
The goal is for the school located in Kyabé, in the southeast of the country, to host high school studies (3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th) and four specialties of professional training (agriculture and livestock, metalwork, commercial and mechanical administration and electricity). In this way, students can continue their studies here and not have to travel to the capital N’Djamena as well as obtain the maximum number of tools possible to enter the labor market.
Although the construction of the complex is planned in five different phases, the Technical Lyceum is already operational. Currently, the first and second courses of secondary education are being taken.
This is one of the largest projects carried out by the Barceló Foundation, where it will invest a total of 300,000 euros to improve, as far as possible, training and education in a particularly needy country, such as Chad.
