INVITATION TO BID

MINOR REHABILITATION & REFURBISHMENT OF LBD-USEFUL HANDS VOCATIONAL INSTITUTE BUILDINGS AND PHYSICAL FACILITIES

 

LBD-Useful Hands Vocational Institute (LBD-UHVI) was established on 1999 at City Road, Wellington in the Western Area of Sierra Leone to offer courses in catering, hairdressing, and tailoring, among others. The institute’s core objective is to produce skilled youth that can be readily absorbed by the labor market or become successful entrepreneurs. 

 

In 2020, LBD-Useful Hands Vocational Institute expanded its program offerings with new courses on (i) Tourism and Hospitality Management (ii) Hair Dressing & Beauty Therapy (iii) Hospitality Management, (iv) Industrial Tailoring and (v) Value-Chain Fish Processing and Agri-business at National Vocational Certificate (4-6-months) and Technicians’ Certificate (12-Months) and Diploma levels (24-Months). 

 

With funds from the Government of Sierra Leone and the World Bank, LBD-UHVI is implementing a new skills training flagship programme with special emphasis on girls (15-24) and physically disadvantaged groups. The aim is to facilitate entry of its graduates into the labor market.  The project proposes to enhance the capacity of the institution to design and implement training courses that provide skills for jobs for young women and men. The Programmed will help the youth to increase their productive and “value-added” capacities and make use of productive infrastructure, new technologies and knowledge. 

 

As one of the beneficiaries of a Skills Development Fund, LBD-UHVI is on a drive to refurbish and modernize its buildings at CITY ROAD – WELLINGTON AND RAILWAY LINE – BROOKFIELDS IN THE WESTERN AREA which may require the following

  • Redesign of some minor infrastructure repair/renovation,
