Vocational Center vision
Projected for 2018, Teneba’s Haven is working for Vocational Training to be offered in tie dying, embroidering & tailoring. The area was canvassed for possible applicants & the results were overwhelmingly in favor. A site for the school is in the works. Once trained, materials will be dyed & various clothing will be created for local sales & possibly marketed here in the States. Pedal Driven Sewing Machine costs available upon request. Further info to follow. Donations now being accepted.
