Exodus 35:35

Look up the passage and you'll understand why this verse is painted on the wall at the New Hope vocational institute. For children whose gifts are more practical the vocational institute offers a way to train them in a skill that they can use to support themselves and their families when they leave New Hope. We enjoyed watching a girl working on one of the looms to create a custom ordered piece of material. It was also interesting to see the tailoring class where students use old style treadle sewing machines (very useful in an area where power is so unreliable). Students from this class learn to make school uniforms which every child attending school must wear. The vocational school also trains students in carpentry, metal work and car repairs.
