NEWLO is a Life Skills and Vocational Training Centre for Youth established in 1984. Bishop Emeritus Sydney Charles founded the organization for young people interested in receiving technical or vocational education and training. Most of those young people were from vulnerable homes and families.


NEWLO aims to provide quality vocational and life skills training for disadvantaged young men and women and people of all ages, religions, and creeds, facilitating growth and sustainable development of the individual in relation to the family, the community, and the nation.


We envision an institution that is financially sustainable with first class facilities, well trained and qualified staff, producing trainees who have recognized international, regional, or national certifications.


  • To provide quality vocational and life skills training for disadvantaged young men, women, and people of all ages, religions, and creeds.
  • To provide training that is certified and recognized nationally, regionally, and internationally.
