A Polytechnic Diploma in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering student by the name of Rodrique Custom is achieving huge strides in his electronic workshop services, which he is conducting in Nkhatabay.

The workshop, which started on October 19th 2019, is currently still in progress.

Custom expressed that his main objective is to motivate and bring in the motivational mind in the young ones.

“We want to help them to aim high in their studies and also to impart in them the innovative minds to find solutions to challenges in their community,” said Custom.

Custom explained that in his three weeks with the students they have managed to develop traffic lights control, temperature monitors and control systems. 

He also commended the students for their ability to learn quickly; “to my surprise I have discovered that these students are learning so fast and I believe they can do great things if they are supported with enough materials,” suggested Custom.

Custom has ten students, five of them boys and five of them girls.

 One of the students a girl named Rachael Kamanga expressed her delight on the experience she has had.

 “We have learned a lot of things such as; how to make traffic lights control, temperature monitoring and control system, which we thought can only be done by University students or white people this has really motivated us a lot,” she said.

The student also acknowledged Custom for helping them learn all this for free.

Custom is not new in the workshop industry as he was also involved in another workshop adventure in Chiradzulo this year with his colleagues, where he again educated the youth on electrical appliances and electricity in general.
