Kenya (Nairobi)

Inter-Cultur has worked for several years in Nairobi in cooperation with Strathmore University, St. Kizito Vocational Training Institute and Imani. 

The project aims to offer educational opportunities to the marginalized youth of the Nairobi slums. Most of the beneficiaries have dropped out of grade school or do not have the adequate skill set to pursue higher education. Hence, the project offers them training in technical skills (welding, mechanics, industrial fabrications) and entrepreneurship. The design of the project contemplates placement in workplaces, such as established businesses, so that the students put into practice their professional training and keep on learning through internships.

Approximately half of the 900 beneficiaries of the project are women aged 18-25. Approximately 70% of the participants have managed to get a job or have founded their own businesses within six months of finishing the program. Being motivated and trained technical workers mitigates their exposure to drugs and other illegal activities. 

This project supports and aligns with the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
