The vision of Shining in Togo Mission is to introduce the next step in the growth of Vogan Christian Academy to start a Vocation School in October 2021. The Vocational School will offer courses in automotive mechanics, electrical trade, masonry, and plumbing. Your partnership will provide the education and technical skills to train students in specific vocations that will change their lives, their families, and the community as a whole.
Though a huge proponent of higher education, Shining in Togo is also convinced that graduating students from our school and sending all of them to college is not always the solution. The alternative is vocational/technical training, providing African youth with the skills needed to access the job market, obtain a decent job, and cultivate an entrepreneurial spirit is the way to go and will get the job of changing the world done faster.
Through vocational training, we would like to empower young people to see them become self-employed and be free from the limits working for a boss imposes on an individual in terms of being Kingdom-focused.
Countries cannot afford to export their young and brightest, which is not, in the long run, a sustainable economic model. Let's find a way to empower young people to become productive members of their own societies and thus reduce the craving for immigration as well. And vocational training is key and the way forward.

Starting a Vocational School is a big goal that comes with a pretty big price tag. Your donations will go toward:
