Spirit of America is conducting a concrete vocational training program in western Kandahar Province. One of the poorest and least-educated parts in the country, this region sees its young men turn to poppy farming or violence because they lack the basic skills needed to find proper jobs. There is high demand for skilled concrete workers and masons but no one to fill those positions, so in conjunction with US Army advisors we have initiated a three-week concrete training that will help twenty local men find jobs, support their families, and keep away from illegal activities – this will improve the local economy and keep our troops safer. Field Rep Isaac Eagan explains this project in detail in the video below and also interviews one of the local trainees.
