TVET Program to Boost Youth Entrepreneurship

Peter Musila 2 years ago

The Council of Governors has embarked on a Technical and Vocational Education and Training programme dubbed Wezesha targeting to encourage entrepreneurship among the youth in counties.

The program will see over 20,000 youth being equipped with skills like hairdressing, among other technical expertise in a bid to reduce the unemployment rate in the country.

The partnership between the Wezesha Youth Program, Council of Governors and Godrej will be rolled out across the country as part of the National Government competence-based education for TVET institutions.

Godrej CEO Gaurav Kaushal while speaking during the launch of the program at Vocational Training Centre in Kericho highlighted the need for having vocational training as it is vital towards a sustainable enterprise development in the country.

According to Kaushal, the move to equip youth with hairdressing and beauty therapy training skills is vital as it will empower them, and enable them to be able to identify and tap opportunities available within the country that can help them derive income and boost productivity.

The youth will be trained on financial literacy, business skills, and communication to help them escalate their ventures.

The programme is envisioned in creating an employable workforce among underprivileged youth from informal settlements in urban and rural Kenya.
