SALAM Training Centre
Salt And Light As Mechanics (SALAM) seeks to train disadvantaged young men to become productive members of their families, fellowships, and communities. This is accomplished through vocational training that results in marketable skills for all graduates, and through moral/spiritual training that results in transformed lives of integrity, service & leadership.
After a basic three-month course common to all, students choose a focus: welding takes an additional three months, house-wiring an additional six months, and motor mechanics an additional nine months. Spiritual teaching includes basic teaching about the scriptures, building from common ground with the majority community, and aims toward a commitment of faith. Moral behavior is reinforced by the overall ethos & management of the training.
