Support our Students through Vocational Workshops
NPH Nicaragua - Education (#P-NIC-17005)

The welding workshop

NPH Nicaragua offers a number of vocational workshops that teach the children life skills and will help them find future employment. These programs help teach our youth valuable skills, how to think critically about complex problems, and help them to become competitive in our small country's labor force.

Our home offers four different workshops to our students: welding, residential electricity, sewing and shoemaking.

After completion of a workshop program, the student receives a certificate from INATEC (Technical Institute of Nicaragua). The INATEC is one of the most prestigious technical institutes in the country and is a prerequisite for many trade school careers.

In addition to the children and youths living in NPH homes, external students from nearby communities also participate in the workshops. The vocational workshops provide children with a great opportunity to learn a trade to improve employment options.

In 2016, a total of 45 students participated in our workshops.
