The Foundation, in collaboration with the Association of Jesuits of Chad, begins the second phase of construction of the educational center for more than 800 students.

The school located in Kyabé, in the southeast of the country, will house secondary studies (3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th) and four specialties of professional training: agriculture-livestock, carpentry-metal, administration-commercial and mechanical-electricity. In this way, students will be able to continue their studies and obtain as many tools as possible to insert themselves into the labour market tomorrow.

After holding the official inauguration ceremony, which was attended by the country’s leading authorities, 70 students started their 2018-2019 classes. In June this year, 85% of them successfully passed the course.

In October 2018 the first phase of the project was completed, consisting of the construction of a security gate, a block of 2 floors with 8 classrooms and 2 offices, an administrative block with a teacher’s lounge, secretariat and toilets for teaching staff, a toilet building for school pupils, a house for the guard and, finally, a well, a water tower and an engine room to supply with electricity to whole centre.

In 2019, the second phase of the construction of a block with 3 specialized classrooms was initiated to include vocational training workshops, toilet buildings, two computer classrooms, changing rooms, etc. young people from Kyabé will be able to acquire vocational training to meet local requirements and thus avoid having to travel to the capital N’Djamena.

The construction of the complex is planned in five different phases and with a budget of 400.000 euros that will be contributed entirely by the Foundation. The project will be completed in 2022.
