The Trades Learning Centre

Providing opportunities through continued education

The Trades Learning Centre in Mexico has been completed! 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.

The training, education, and skills development portion of this project is moving forward as well. The first class began in October with 12 students. Watch the video below to meet Edgar, who is the instructor for this first class.
