New Dynamic Art Business Center (NDABUC) offers tailoring, driving and electricity short courses to the poor youth that never got chance of completing secondary school education.
Talking to some youth at NDABUC, they confessed that through skills training, it’s not easy to fall into men’s’ temptations when they are earning a living unlike what happens to some youth after dropping out of school.
After dropping out of school, some become idlers, some girls get unwanted pregnancies while other boys resort to robbery, which can never happen to them if they join vocational training centres, they note.
Shadia Izabayo, one of the students from Remera sector in Ngoma district denotes: “When you drop out of school, men and boys tempt you with money which it’s not easy to refuse with a lot of needs. This results in AIDS and unwanted pregnancies to most girls. However, with your little income no one can blow you off your feet.”
Hussein Nganimana, Director of New Dynamic Art Business Center (NDABUC) says that since they deal with poor students, each pays Rwf3000 per month until they complete.
“Being at this centre prevents youth from engaging in bad behavior due to poverty. Whenever I meet my former students, they say they have better lives socially and economically due to the skills obtained at this school,” he explains.
Students that come to NDABUC are recommended by churches as poor school dropouts. At least 50 people complete different skills after every six months.
