Alidou Is Hard at Work

By Lauren Anderson, Thursday November 7, 2019

I would like to introduce you to Alidou. He graduated this August after completing 2 years in the welding program. He is a hard worker but I didn’t realize how hard a worker he was until I went looking for pictures. In most of the pictures he was either head down hard at work or his face was behind a welding mask because he was working. 

A few days before graduation he came to Roger and asked if it would be possible for him to stay longer at the centre; like most graduates he was apprehensive about going out and getting a job. Roger knew he was very capable and ready to start on his career and encouraged him to get out there and knock on doors. He did just that, and a week after he graduated he phoned Roger to tell him that he was working at a new airport that is under construction and making very good money. Not only did he find employment for himself but he also found work for one of his fellow students!
