TEVETA visits DAPP Dowa Teachers Training College (TTC)
DAPP Malawi continues to train and equip youth in various skills through its four teacher training colleges and Mikolongwe vocational school. As such, on 16th August, TEVETA Head of Projects & Development Mr Ishmail Ali visited DAPP Dowa Teachers Training Centre (TTC) to appreciate the courses on offer. He interacted with graduated tailoring students who were trained under a four months tailoring course known as Satellite which targets adolescent girls and young women from vulnerable backgrounds. The course, offered in all the four DAPP TTC’s, is an extension of the three year Tailoring and Fashion design course at DAPP Mikolongwe Vocational school and is funded by Sympany from the Netherlands.
Very impressed with the array of various sewn materials made by the graduates, Mr Ali commended DAPP for the good work that is being done.
