Providing opportunities through continued education The Trades Learning Centre in Mexico offers training to locals so they can be self-sufficient and have more employment opportunities. The production of shelving, cabinets, beds, tables, and chairs is underway and the facility is being used to help furnish family homes that are completed through our Builds program.
