117 finish USAID training for Kenyan apparel sector jobs

Oct '17
Hundred and seventeen Kenyan trainees cleared a course on technical and soft skills organised by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) East Africa Trade and Investment Hub’s new apparel workforce skills development programme at three training centres in Nairobi, Jumvu and Mtwapa. Similar training is under way at other locations as well.

Thirty graduates from the Mombasa Apparels export processing zone (EPZ) in Jomvu, 48 from Africa Apparel EPZ Ltd in Nairobi’s industrial area and 39 from Africa Apparel EPZ Ltd in Mtwapa are now either being interviewed for jobs or are already employed.

All trainees from Jomvu, the first boot camp to complete the eight-week training, have already commenced work at Mombasa Apparel EPZ Ltd, according to a press release from USAID.

More such training centres will open soon in Athi River and Nairobi. USAID expects to train 2,000 individuals for careers in the apparel sector by the time the project ends.

USAID’s programme addresses the constraints that inhibit growth in the East African apparel sector. (DS)
