Since 2016, German we have been supporting IT education in cooperation with the Mitume Community Development Project in Tuwan Location, a poverty stricken community in Kitale, Kenya. The city is one of the biggest urban centers in Kenya. 60% of the young people are unemployed, mostly because they lack the required skills to successfully enter the job market.
Thanks to a grant from Stiftung Umverteilen , we are now able to enter this programme in its 3rd phase. We are aiming to support 100 young people from the community to access the job markets, with a focus on young women and supporting the reconciliation and peace processs between the different tribes living in the multicultural town of Kitale. We will have different training sessions on IT basics and entrepreneurship, job skills training and workshops with our Actor for Change and Peace Ambassadors to promote a peaceful life for everyone.
