ChildsLife Vocational Centre

The ChildsLife Vocational Centre in the slum of Kibera was built in 2011 to give disadvantaged youth the opportunity to learn a profession, find a job and escape poverty. 

The centre provides effective and quality training that fits in with the local labour market so that graduates can start work immediately. The vocational training offers a wide range of professions such as tailoring, electrical engineering and ICT. All these courses are designed to enable graduates to find a job or start their own business. In addition to the training, students receive life skills training, a practical and comprehensive course that helps prepare them for life outside the slum.
