ABOUT WEST AFRICAN VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS
WAVS works hand-in-hand with local leaders in Guinea-Bissau to operate a vocational school that equips more than 200 students each year with life-changing job skills.
The WAVS School, located in the town Canchungo, is run by an all-Guinean staff and offers classes in computer basics, auto mechanics, welding, English and French. These courses are designed to equip young women and men with marketable job skills so that they can transform their communities.
Since opening in 2006, the WAVS School has served more than 1,000 students. Soon, WAVS will begin constructing a second campus in Bissau, the capital of Guinea-Bissau, which will train 1,000 students each year.
