Poly-technical Wood Working Shop

The polytec complex consists of several buildings that are adaptable to various uses. The largest houses the wood shop but has four adjoining rooms that could be used for other vocational training. It is well designed to capture natural light and cool breezes, a very pleasant place to work. The equipment is commercial grade and very old (second hand machines for third world countries?) But is capable of changing raw wood into finished lumber, which in itself could be a marketable product. Lack of dependable electricity and easy access to water, quality raw materials, simple hand tools and supplies . . . present challenges for supporting an efficient operation. Yet, if the village is to become self-sustaining it will need to provide vocational choices for the children that will soon become young adults looking for a future beyond the village.
