Why Youth in This County Are Happy

Makueni has launched a youth life skills training programme dubbed UJUZI TEKETEKE to equip young people with industrial skills. 

The programme, launched by deputy governor Adelina Mwau Thursday, is supported by the National Industrial Training Authority (NITA) and Kenya National Federation of Juakali Association.

Mwau said the 8-week pilot programme will enhance the employability and business acumen of the trainee craftsmen in their fields of trade. 

Beneficiaries will be attached to enlisted established master craftsmen for two months for on-the-job training and undergo a trade test by NITA

The master crafts persons will be supported in order to sustain the youth throughout the apprenticeship program.

Upon successful completion of the training, beneficiaries will be certified by NITA and granted start-up tools of work by the county government to establish their businesses. 

Some of the areas of focus include: Welding, Video production and Photography, carpentry, Masonry, Mechanics, Kinyozi and Salon. Others are Plumbing, Tailoring, Outside catering and Agribusinesses. 

Youth and Devolution county executive Joshua Wambua is upbeat that successful rollout of the programme will create a critical mass of technical knowledge and guarantee the economic liberation of the county at large.
