It’s official! Mercy Tech Mission is back on the road again, after a 2-year break due to travel restrictions, and our destination is Eswatini, Africa. We are very excited to be returning to Project Canaan, where we are partnering with Heart for Africa at their farm and children’s home.
Greetings to all of you who have been following and supporting the ongoing work of Mercy Tech Mission. As you know, our mission is to improve the economic situations of those living in poverty by teaching them employable skills, and our most recent trip to Africa in February 2020 was a clear example of that.
Our training this time focused on mechanics, both heavy duty and regular; wood lathe turning; electrical training, with a special project to install computer networking in the primary school; industrial electrical training with a focus on electric motors and water pumps; agricultural techniques, including irrigation maintenance; farm machinery repair. Some of our volunteers also helped out at the children’s campus, did data entry for the medical clinic, and assisted with early childhood education training in the primary school classrooms.
