Challenge

There is a high level of unemployment associated with poverty, disability, and gender discrimination in Kenya of which a recent study statistic indicates that 55.4 percent of the population underemployed which is of great concern to the entire nation however much the government tries to put a brave face and train more youth on employability skills. Deaf are the most affected the victims since they can't defend themselves due to communication, they're the beneficiary

Solution

The project will provide vocational training skills for future economic independence and the opportunity to become part of a larger solution for their own families, community and in doing so we share in the development of their families and the entire community. KCSD takes the unequivocal position that there's no excuse for this deplorable situation, since Deaf girls, women and the vulnerable youth have the same innate intellectual, social and emotional capacities, as do all human beings.

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 3000 deaf girls, women and vulnerable youths on employability skills giving them opportunities to rise out of poverty, by providing them with future economic independent, self-sustainability and an opportunity to become part of a solution for their own community and in doing so we share in the development of their families and the entire community hence becoming independent socially and economically.
