Vision for Africa Intl. has a college which consists of the Hotel Management and Media Designing and Printing Technology Department.
The Media Designing and Printing Technology department has a total of 9 students (5 boys and 4 girls), all are orphans who are being given skills of Graphic Designing and Printing, by 2 lecturers who were also once students from the same department. The founder of this college is Mr. Horst Kukuk, a Print engineer from Germany.
This department offers a 2 year diploma and since the last 8 years, 4 classes have already graduated from this department.Another skill that we would like to add to these courses is the skill of Photography.
