Kambia College of Management and Technology
Name of Instituion
Technical Vocational Institute
Type of Instituion
The college was established in October 2012 by a young educationist who deemed it wise to help improve education in Kambia District and complement government effort. The founders of the said institution realised that the district is known for large numbers of dropouts from school. Poor students find it very difficult to pursue their education and are unable to make their way to attain higher education. Henceforth, their education pursuits come to a halt. This greatly affects the district, leading to a high crime rate, particularly increasing smuggling activities along the borderline. It also leads to an increase in the number of bike riders in the district and diminishes the performance of secondary school pupils. KCMT was founded to counteract these developments.
