Life wasn’t that easy for Alfred after he lost both of his parents six years ago. Alfred owns a small canoe and he goes fishing to earn money during time off school. Despite of his young age, he is already well known for his fishing skills which has earned him a place in a “big man” fishing boat, that goes out fishing at night and sometimes for more than several days.
Alfred is a quiet and shy individual with strong work ethics. He is a charming and lovable young man, with a smile that will melt you immediately. Alfred’s younger sister Mary is also a current student, who he helps to support both financially and emotionally.
Despite the hard work on the fishing boat that Alfred is doing to support himself and his sister, he’s got a magic touch when it comes to kente weaving and always creates stunning kente cloths. As he described himself, “art takes me some place else, where I am not worried about the hardship and every day life struggles. “
Being the tallest of all the students also means Alfred is invaluable during our weekly volleyball tournaments. Additionally Alfred plays a defensive position in the famous Cape 3 Points football team.
After graduating from Trinity Yard School this June, Alfred wants to become a licensed commercial-driver and start his own transportation business.
Although the cost of each vocational school placement varies, as does the ability of the graduates’ families to contribute, an average placement costs Trinity Yard approximately $1,800 for a typical three-year program (inclusive of tuition, student fees, material costs, food, housing, transportation, etc.).
