The Ministry of Education must build more vocational institutes in every district and later, all the 238 constituencies must have a vocational training institute. With them, you can’t go wrong because you acquire knowledge and create jobs or the skills acquired enable you get employment,” he said.

The US$ 4.5 million ultra modern vocational training institute is to be built and equipped by the Korea Cooperation International Agency (KOICA), on behalf of the government of the Republic of Korea. The construction that is expected to be completed by the end of 2015 will have an intake of more than 300 students. The site of the Institute that is situated in Village 7, Ntinda Parish-Nakawa Division, will provide hands on training in 4 components that include, welding and plumbing, automobile, electrical as well as sewing.

The President thanked the government of the Republic of Korea for supporting Uganda in training skilful youth, emphasizing that “it is the only way to guarantee the future of Uganda.”

He also thanked the students of Nakawa Vocational Training Institute for joining the government in the struggle to liberate this country from underdevelopment.

“I thank KOICA for coming to help us to direct our country to science and skills. That is how we can guarantee our future. I also thank the students for joining me in the struggle to remove this country from underdevelopment,” he said.


The Minister of Education and Sports Ms. Jessica Alupo, pointed out that the launch was yet another land mark of the implementation of BTVET, a program mandated with the task of ensuring the skilling of Ugandans. She urged the community of Nakawa Division to support the project.

The Resident Representative of KOICA in Uganda Ms. Kang Younhwa was optimistic that the Vocational Training Institute will bridge the gap of youth unemployment and will help nurture and develop skills that are fundamental in the process of transforming the country from peasantry to modernity.
