“… We must recognise that we need to share our skills with the community, society and the country at large…  BIT was established to create opportunities that will help you to develop skills in various fields. Therefore, because that opportunity was afforded to you, you must become responsible citizens and give back.”

Technical Officer for BIT, Devika Ramsawak, during her presentation of the Project report noted that this is the fourth year BIT has collaborated with the Leonora Technical and Vocational Institute to deliver programmes to youths in the region.

Regional Executive Officer, Dennis Jaikarran reminded the graduates to seek self-employment and to work on honing the right skills, knowledge and attitude in order to propel themselves forward He further noted the investment the instructors from Board of Industrial Training and Leonora Technical and Vocational have invested in the students.
