Workplace integration of underprivileged young women from the slums of Nairobi through qualifying training in the hotel industry
Our support to Kibondeni is intended to improve the standard of living of young women from the slums excluded from the educational system by promoting access to employment through suitable vocational training in the promising hospitality industry. Our support has enabled the creation of a School-Enterprise training model. The production unit at the training centre makes training more practical by putting the students in an actual production environment similar to what they will find in a company. In addition, it ensures the self-financing of the school through product sales. The students are very enthusiastic because the training conditions really prepare them for the work world. Thanks to this practical work, they can assess their new skills as training progresses and feel the satisfaction of work well done, which is valued by customers.
