Rafiki Ya Maisha

We founded Rafiki Ya Maisha to provide vocational training to unemployed young people & women in need, who have no secondary education nor access to trade schools in rural Western Kenya. This forgotten group of youths gets material assistance for acquiring life skills through our small college in Chepkanga. This village empowerment endeavor has components in conservation, health, culture, micro-finance, counseling, brick making. We are building a larger polytechnic center to serve Sergoit area.

Mission

We founded Rafiki Ya Maisha to provide vocational training to unemployed young people & women in need, who have no secondary education nor access to trade schools in rural Western Kenya. This forgotten group of youths gets material assistance for acquiring life skills through our small college in Chepkanga. This village empowerment endeavor has components in conservation, health, culture, micro-finance, counseling, brick making. We are building a larger polytechnic center to serve Sergoit area.

Programs

Through our partner organization in Kenya, we train the youth in life skills like sewing, tailoring, hairdressing, baking and computer studies. A cyber cafe and a youth center opened this year. We plan to add masonry, electrical and carpentry in the new center. The training leads to a trade certificate or continued education in the town polytechnic. We help in establishing small businesses, organize community events and sensitize the youth to a cleaner, safer, dignified and independent future.
