The HPI Agriculture and Technical Vocational Centre will be much more than just a training facility. It will be the centre of community activities where the local people will be able to learn, produce and ultimately sell handcrafted items.
HPI has received a donation of a large commercial sized solar collection system with battery storage facilities which will be used to provide a portion of the necessary power for all electric powered equipment. Other donations of useful items—like automotive hand-tools, chain saws, lumbering equipment and various woodworking items, as well as sewing machines—have been received at our Canadian storage depot.
HPI anticipates the shipping of the donated agricultural and technical training equipment by mid 2018. Initially, most of the instructors in the HPI Agriculture and Technical Vocational Centre will be volunteers from western Canada along with a small group South Sudanese-born who wish to return to their village to assist in the training of their fellow village people. Invitations to volunteer are being accepted on this website.
