Veterans Watchmaker Initiative

Veterans Watchmaker Initiative

Postby koimaster » September 20th 2018, 8:46pm

Sam Canaan of Dover is training Veterans in watchmaking with a vision to offer respectful employment after service and support them in building a new career. The school, which provides free watchmaking training to the veterans, operates entirely on grants and donations from contributing partners and donors and the local county government allows them to rent the building for only $1 a year. The Veterans Watchmaker Initiative (VWI) has attracted global interest based on Sam Canaan’s determination. Seeing the good amount of work being done, Swatch Group recently donated $140,000 worth of watchmaking equipment and materials to the school.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
