Technisches Praktikum (Technical Internship PRF 8433) Bei Interesse PRF Nr. angeben
Contribution to Strategy: There are ongoing technical and construction needs at the Centre Handicapes en Avance. People with technical, engineering, and construction skills are needed to develop or construct projects and to train Burkinabe in the maintainance of them. This enables the center to function effectively so that many people can be serviced according to their needs and the Gospel and love of Christ can be shared through medical, educational, and occupational services. Providing a mission arena for persons to use their technical training can also foster interest in long term mission work.
