Magamba cel­e­brates 21st grad­u­a­tion

The Manica Post - - Local News/advertorial -

MAGAMBA Train­ing Cen­tre once again cel­e­brates its 21st an­nual grad­u­a­tion in pur­suit of the na­tional so­cio-eco­nomic trans­for­ma­tion agenda. This year’s grad­u­a­tion theme is:

“In­fra­struc­ture and Cur­ricu­lum Ex­pan­sion For Ac­cel­er­ated Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment: The Triple P. Ap­proach.’’

Man­i­ca­land Train­ing for En­ter­prise Trust is an or­gan­i­sa­tion that is run by a Board of Trustees that ad­vises Magamba Train­ing Cen­tre on is­sues per­tain­ing to train­ing in re­sponse to com­mu­nity needs.

We cher­ish out­side or­gan­i­sa­tions hence the need to em­brace pri­vate or­gan­i­sa­tions for in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment for youth trans­for­ma­tion.

The col­lege`s thrust and man­date is to pro­vide en­trepreneurial, life and vo­ca­tional skills train­ing to the un­em­ployed, vul­ner­a­ble, out of school and dis­ad­van­taged youths.

The col­lege whose par­ent Min­istry is the Min­istry of Youth, Sport, Arts and Re­cre­ation fol­lows a strict stu­dent dis­ci­plinary code in its en­deav­our to mould re­spon­si­ble and pa­tri­otic youths who should con­tribute to the suc­cess of the Tran­si­tional Sta­bil­i­sa­tion Pro­gram (TSP) to be launched soon.

This mode of train­ing dubbed Train­ing for En­ter­prise De­vel­op­ment has called for a par­a­digm shift in the tra­di­tional train­ing method­olo­gies as fo­cus now is on pro­vid­ing sec­ond chance ed­u­ca­tion by train­ing a hands on cadres who are self-re­liant, in­no­va­tive, busi­ness minded and ca­pa­ble of mak­ing use of op­por­tu­ni­ties around them.

Projects and pro­duc­tiv­ity

Dur­ing the course of the year, we man­aged to ini­ti­ate and ac­com­plish some projects. We are proud to have in­tro­duced the Diploma In Agri­cul­ture With Spe­cial­i­sa­tion In To­bacco Pro­duc­tion and a Spe­cial Cer­tifi­cate In Agri­cul­ture With Spe­cial­i­sa­tion In To­bacco Pro­duc­tion in May to add onto the Diploma In Agri­cul­ture that was started last year in Septem­ber.

The cur­rent en­rol­ment for the diploma pro­grammes are as pre­vi­ously stated.

The Spe­cial Cer­tifi­cate In Agri­cul­ture With Spe­cial­i­sa­tion In To­bacco Pro­duc­tion has an en­rol­ment of 21stu­dents com­pris­ing 9 males and 12 fe­males. Through triple P ap­proach, to­gether with BATZTET, we man­aged to in­stall a to­bacco 2-hectare drip ir­ri­gation sys­tem as well as build to­bacco cur­ing and han­dling fa­cil­i­ties, which will be com­mis­sioned on the grad­u­a­tion day.

Prin­ci­pal’s mes­sage. ◆ Con­grat­u­la­tory mes­sage

◆ Mes­sage to the grad­u­at­ing

stu­dents.

The trans­for­ma­tion pe­riod is over now to the grad­u­at­ing class.

As you get cer­ti­fied to­day Fri­day the 9th of Novem­ber 2018 you are changed per­sons in the com­mu­ni­ties you come from.

The na­tion, par­ents and your­self in­vested in cash and kind to your suc­cess there­fore it is time you re­turn.

Your re­turns are ex­pected to be in the form of con­tin­ued dis­ci­pline, com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion to your fu­ture as de­vel­oped and nur­tured dur­ing the two years that you were in school.

The skills you have ac­quired are for the com­mu­nity and na­tional de­vel­op­ment so ex­por­ta­tion of such is just but a last re­sort.

Ex­o­dus 20:9 says `Six days though labour, and do all thy work”, show­ing that noth­ing comes for free.

One has to work for a brighter life. Wish you the best in your en­deav­ours.

Con­grat­u­la­tions, Am­ph­lope, Mako­rokoto.

The Pro­vin­cial Prin­ci­pal Mr Isa­iah Sabwe
