Culture Creativity Enterprise

Mass-produced goods have all but destroyed the passing down of knowledge of traditional crafts. The implementation of a program to train, support and regenerate the local craft industry is one way of addresing this issue. With youth unemployment more than twice the national adult average, CCE for those who have left secondary education becomes one  way this marginalized group can learn a skill, be creative and be able to generate sustainable incomes. CCE is targeted at young people between the age of 15-22 and runs in 10 week blocks.  Crafts include pottery, basic wood turning, bamboo crafts, basket weaving and more.  If you have a skill you would like to share or intetested in the nexk course.
