Consortium on Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET)
This solution addresses Technical vocational education and training in Kenya for youth in Kenya including those in remote areas who cannot always attend classroom training
Problem DescriptionYouth in the most remote areas usually lack of access to vocational education and training where they cannot leave their occupations and income streams to learn full time. The milestone consortium partnership in vocational skills training between UNDP Kenya, Housing Finance Foundation, Kuza Biashara and the SDG Philanthropy Platform will significantly transform the way youth would want to Learn, Connect and Grow beyond the current trainings offered by the Biashara centre in line with 21st Century technology to reach more youth even in the most remote areas using mobile phones. Internet training on computers at the Biashara centre will be complemented by mobile phone training and TVET on wheels which will extend access beyond the centre to some of the most remote areas of Marsabit.
Under the guidance of the SDG Philanthropy Platform, UNDP Kenya, Kuza Biashara and HF Foundation committed to engage in a partnership that would deliver, facilitate and catalyze industry relevant and sustainable practical skills required across sectors by building on technological and user trends.
