Timor Leste - Don Bosco Comoro
The Don Bosco Technical Trianing Centre in Comoro, Dili, offers a variety of courses in building trades.
After their completion, Fr Jose Vattaparmbil actively helps the students secure employment in Dili, in order that they escape the high unemployment rate in the city. Equipping young people with the necessary tools to prosper throughout their life, serves as a reliable way to create work opportunities, so that they can provide for themselves and their families.
Fr Jose recently established the “Bosconian Builders”, a group of two girls and nine boys who have completed their level 3 general construction training. The group recently worked on the construction of a community meeting centre, which included two halls, a kitchen with walk-in pantry, offices and toilets. Their training shone through because of the high standard of work and the completion of this project 3 months earlier than expected. Other projects have included the construction of a female toilet and shower block at the school (funded by ASMOAF) and a water tank at the nearby Ahisaun Centre for the Disabled.
