Vocational Training and Development
VOCATIONAL TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT prepares Tumaini students for future growth and economic opportunity. Programs include Technology and Social Media Training, the Sewing and Tailoring Training Program, and the Beading Project
The Technology and Social Media training program at Tumaini provides students with skill that have become essential for the best employment and career opportunities. For children from disadvantaged backgrounds the lack of these skill makes closing the gap of inequality more difficult. Technology skills are also essential for success in higher education.
The Beading Project
The Beading Project was started by Pricilla Muthoni, parish secretary, (Upper R). This group of women migrated on foot with their children to Nyeri from the Turkana District in northeastern Kenya to escape severe famine and political unrest in their home region.
Because the women have no formal education and speak only their native tongue, they had no means of supporting themselves and their Children in their new home.
With a small donation for materials, Pricilla has helped them create this enterprise. The proceeds from jewelry sales are helping these women support their families and educate their children.
