YOUTH Job Corps have upgraded the car park, footpaths and fences at St Peters Elementary and Primary School in Erima, National Capital District (NCDC).
The 134 youths, under the National Capital District Commission’s urban youth employment project, completed the project in about 20 days, according to coordinator and senior public works engineer Nixon Fanai.
Speaking at the unveiling of a signboard programme, deputy project manager Mathias Liu said the project was about building human resources.
“To build the human beings, we came up with small projects like this for them to do and learn something from them,” Liu said.
Liu urged the school and the public to have a sense of ownership and look after the school properties.
Deputy city manager Honk Kiap said previously, contractors did little and got large amounts of money but for this project, it cost a little amount of money and a great job done.
“Government must look at this and spend money and support this project,” Kiap said.
He said the labourers were youths who learnt skills in life while working. St Peters head teacher Carmel Torombe thank National Capital District Commission and the youths for the development of the school.
She said it was a really big relief to the school because it removed problems like congestion and boosted the profile of the school.
