The link above should play you a song by a student (the aptly named Maurice Bricky) who is studying Bricklaying and Concrete Practice at Daniel Comboni Vocational Institute. He produced, wrote and recorded it for a recent Music, Dance and Drama Gala.

It is sung in Luo, I think the lyrics sum up what everyone involved hopes this Vocational, Business and Life skills programme is all about.

The English translation. :

We’ve come a long way; we’ve travelled far – all to seek education
Previously we walked heads down
Today we walk heads up – because we have knowledge and skills
We can practice what we have learned
We can now reduce poverty with our skills
We can now reduce ignorance we were formally in
Morris Bricky – Good boy
Chorus

We give back all our thanks to DFID – for helping us
We give back all our thanks to VSO – for helping us
Now my sister knows sweater knitting – all because of DFID
Now my brother knows motor vehicle repair – all because of VSO
Motorcycle repair; metal fabrication; building – not a problem!
Electrical installation; hair care – all because of DFID
Our hand works are beautiful and beautiful – all because of VSO
Repeat Chorus

Now we request that you don’t end with us
Let other people also benefit, even the disabled in the communities all need help.
Orphans, child mothers all need help
Repeat Chorus
