A new school block constructed in 2015 The LMK Basic School.

The Centre, established by the LMK in 1987 with support from the Inter Churches Community Organization (ICCO) of Netherlands to provide vocational and technical training to the youth within the La community and its environs continue to serve its purpose. However, for the year under review (and for 4 years running), the centre operated only two modules comprising Dressmaking and Catering.
Enrollment into the Centre was affected considerably due to the lack of space after the centre was ejected from its former spacious location after the expiration of the leasehold in 2011.
Modules run by the centre at its inception include:-
  1. Carpentry and Joinery,
  2. Block Moulding and Masonry,
  3. Dressmaking, and
  4. Catering.
