ECLAT wants to give young people from the district a crafting career perspective, with which they can build an existence in the district. Thanks to the support of the BMZ (Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development) and the DER Touristik, the construction work for the center could begin in October 2018, so that in the middle of 2019 the first adolescents can start a bricklayer apprenticeship (see project completion).
