Free vocational school in Zomba calls out for help

James Kajawo, a well wisher at Malosa in Zomba, has been running a free vocational training institution for three years and now he is calling for support.

Atleast 183 youths have graduated after completing courses in tailoring and electrical installation out of the 300 he enrolled this year.

Kajawo operates through his community based organisation called One for All and he funds the training programmes with money realized from his music shows.

However all has not been rosy due to inadequate financial resources.

” In 2022, I graduated 65 learners, but it has been expensive to buy materials for the trainings. There are several able people in the country who can help [hence] my call,” Kajawo says.

Director of Joyce Banda Foundation International, Edith Akridge, applauded the initiative, saying it will help create wealth among rural communities.

” Our foundation donated K1 million after learning about the initiative,” says Ackridge.

Meanwhile students at One for All organisations from Senior Chief Mlumbe’s area in Zomba returned home to display their skills by sewing clothes for the elderly as an act of charity.

According to Kajawo, this was aimed at instilling trust in parents of the youngsters who were wondering about the initiative.
