Why We Started
Three out of four workers in Kenya are employed in the informal sector. There is no social safety network, leaving the working population vulnerable and lacking in real choices. This program was established to assist our students who are unable to find a place in the formal sector.
There are many training courses offered in a variety of skill areas that are popular, such as hairdressing, tailoring, carpentry and tourism. We focus on skills or aptitudes the students have shown during their time at Kookaburra.
We use colleges that not only offer training in the desired industry but also basic business and IT skills, as well as job placements, or assistance in job search, at the end of training.
