Youth capacity building has been at the heart of the Children and Youth Empowerment Centre from the beginning. This year we are excited to expand our vocational skills program to a new community about 20 minutes away from the Centre. The new site was a polytechnic before, so it has some good facilities that just needed a bit of refurbishment. However we're expanding the curriculum so we've had to also do some construction.
We'll provide opportunities for disadvantaged local youth as well as those from the larger Nyeri area to obtain skills in agricultural entrepreneurship, computer technology, wood working, welding and tailoring. We're especially proud that some of our former youth will be teaching assistants in this new program!
Your support helps build our educational programs and ensures that these youth have the skills needed for a promising future! Thanks for all you do!
