WEC Vocational and Technical Institute
WEC Vocational and Technical Institute was incepted way back in 1989 by the Mother’s Union Church of Uganda. It has existed for all this time to operate a Vocational Training center until recently when the name was realigned to capture the boy youth in its operation of imparting skills.
