Mekanissa: One of the missions of the "Print Your Future" project, a dream project of the VIS realized in Ethiopia, has been offering tools and the opportunities for students and laborers in graphic industry to improve their knowledge and skills to express it best in their workplaces and to share it with their colleagues.  With this vision, Don Bosco Mekanissa organized a course in graphic design and layout in Photoshop and In design and another course in printing technology and maintenance of machines.  

The great novelty was that the course became a reality thanks to the collaboration of the graphic school DON BOSCO IMAGE, KOCHI-INDIA. Indian professors came to share their experiences and professionalism with enthusiasm and passion. The courses were attended by more than 60 people, including students from Don Bosco Mekanissa, members of the Graphic Arts and Press Association and TVET agency professionals. 

The course witnessed two weeks of total immersion in the training to create a good graphic product. Professors proved to be able to convey graphic knowledge by going beyond cultural differences and language difficulties by creating a synergistic team of work and collaboration with all the participants. Although the courses started from basic content respecting the level of professional knowledge of all the participants, the final result was good and satisfactory. Eventually the students received a certificate and in turn, they presented with exquisitely cultural gifts expressing their gratitude and appreciation and their will to make the treasures of what they had already learned.

On May 18, took place the inauguration and blessing of the new building of Don Bosco Mekanissa Printing and Graphics unite, which was realized with the collaboration and supervision of the VIS and the Salesians in Ethiopia thanks to the donation of the Italian Foreign Ministry and the Italian Bishops' Conference. Local and international authorities such as the Italian Ambassador to Addis Ababa GIUSEPPE MISTRETTA, Mons. Luigi Bianco, the Apostolic Nuncio, Director of TVET Capacity Building Directorate Ato Bizuneh Adugna, and many other invited guests.
