Tech Institute library
original tech institute
The original technical institute building took 7 years to construct. This first story was for carpentry, music and ESL classes. 2007
The second story of the original school expanded the classes to Bible College full time and a computer lab. Downstairs also accomodated mechanics and electricity.
first school in its glory
The first technical institute buiding was a beauty once completed in Dec 2009, just before the January 2010 earhtquake that destroyed it. But it had already come to be too small to accomodate all the classes offered.
The cabinets for the residence building kitchen were built by our first carpentry class students.
picturesque place of study
Very first ESL classes were done under the mango trees before a building was ever constructed.
