Construction workers are physical nation builders. From the foundations to the roof, windows, and walls these men and women create beautiful, practical, safe places for society. Construction is an important sector that contributes greatly to the economic growth of a nation.


There can be no shortcuts when it comes to building straight, strong, long-lasting walls. Our students learn to read sketches and blueprints, calculate materials required, cut and trim bricks and blocks to specification.


Carpentry is a precision skill that requires accuracy in measuring and cutting so that everything fits smoothly without wastage. A carpenter uses ancient and modern techniques to convert raw wood into finished products.


Learning the basics of working with electricity develops our student’s ability to follow instructions, work methodically, pay attention to detail, and unwavering commitment to health and safety regulations.


The starting point for all bread is to make a dough by combining four essential ingredients: flour, water, yeast and salt. But the secret ingredient is time. Time separates artisanal baking from the mass-produced bread we find in supermarkets.


The services of the painter are needed everywhere from homes to public buildings, factories and offices. Painting is a creative job that requires a sense of design as well as the core skills of priming, coating, painting, gliding and most importantly, preparation of surfaces.


Plumbers ensure that water, which is essential to daily life, reaches its destination safely, and is discarded without causing any damage in the process. When things go wrong it is the plumber’s job to detect the leak and to solve the problem swiftly.

The SOZO Foundation-CeeJay

“My name is Shane Morris, and my journey with Sozo started in 2018. I was at home doing nothing I saw Neville Williams handing out forms, and he asked me if I would like to join. When I said yes, I joined the Sozo Construction Skills school and I was a student here for eight months. My time here as a student helped shape my character a lot. Also working very closely with Uncle Cecil helped me learn directly from someone with a lot of experience.

After that, I got an internship at Melomed which lasted for 3 months. I was unemployed for some time before Uncle Cecil called me and asked if I would like a full-time job with Kingdom Builders. I was very excited because this was an opportunity for me to get a job. Then I came back to Sozo in 2020 and after three years, I am still working with Kingdom Builders. Sozo gave me a lot of confidence because when I started here, I was a very shy person, but now I am more confident, and I believe in myself more. The advice I would give to someone looking to walk the same road I have walked is to join Sozo because here, you will learn a lot about skills for work and a lot about yourself as a person.
