This is aimed at children above 14 years old who are unable to go back to secondary school, and who need productive employment to prevent them from following many down the line of alcohol and drug abuse, and not being able to support themselves or a future family. The scheme works with trainers in Thika and its surrounding towns and villages, providing apprenticeship training and giving the children vocational skills that can be directly translated into meaningful employment. Alongside the skills training, we also work with them on life skills, educating them on how to use the money they earn responsibly, how to save money, how to give good customer service,and how to market their business effectively. We find working with the boys and girls in groups is particularly effective, encouraging a cooperative style support group for savings, advice and other networking opportunities. At any one time, we normally have about 20 children in the scheme, though this depends on how successful each skills training is, with opportunities available in everything from mobile phone repair to carpentry, and from hairdressing to textile work. We even conduct market research to try and ascertain which business areas are highest in demand, to really give the children and youths’ the best chance to succeed economically.
