Business Training Recruitment

By Nancy Waweru | Principle

Business Training Recruitment
Business Training Recruitment

A total of 25 girls and young mothers who are graduates of VAP’s sexual health and reproductive awareness program were recently recruited into various vocational training courses of their own choices.Empowered with lifeskills education in their respective communities and schools,the group were taken through career awareness forum to have a candid discusion with various invited tutors and business professionals in collaboration with VAP coaches who took them through challenges and successes of their chosen careers.The forum was held at VAP’s new facility ‘Youth Empowerment Centres’ that’s still under construction which also has an up coming unit for vocational training and a gender based violence recovery unit that would provide a safe place for victims of GBV to acquire lifeskills and employment and entrepreneurship pathways.

Approaching Phase Two of the Youth Empowerment Hub

The construction work towards the realization of VAP’s Youth Empowerment Hub is still underway with the first floor being worked on.The building aims to reach at 4th floor with the  following:vocational training Centre, Youth friendly Health clinic, Gender Based Recovery block, Library, Research and Innovation unit, Common space, Volunteer accommodation, football pitch and a basketball court.

Youth program participants and the general community will have a pride place and an opportunity to meet:play,learn and grow together.As the centre is taking shape,VAP  is inviting interested partners:corporates,individuals and foundations for a partnership or branding opportunity  be it in-kind (building materials) or monetary.Interests should be directed to info@vijanaamanipamoja.org.
