Led by their Project Leaders and serve as their Instructors and Mentors, Mr. Edburge Mabel, Mr. Elwais Samil and Mr. Willard Smau, work has progressed and the youth are learning carving skills, wood ripping and designing formats.

By the end of the project, the State of Odesangel will have new signs beautifying and identifying key and significant areas, historical & tourist sites, so visitors can be guided when touring the Island of Enchantment. More importantly, our 17 youth would have acquired skills and knowledge on traditional wood carving. [/restrict]
