WHAT WE DO
Carpentry makes some Strides
Carpentry section in SRI has made tremendous strides since the new carpentry trainer Mr. Cornel Odongo came on board. Has managed to enroll 2 students: Luke Ochieng and David Omondi. He trains them wood joinery and planning. Training takes a period of 3 years broken into 3 semesters of 3 months. In the end, students will be able to sit for a certificate of Joinery & Carpentry examinations at Boya polytechnic. We expect these students, later on, to establish their one workshops or work in established ones
