Promoting Life Skills and Livelihoods of the Youth in Kakuma

Since 2013 Swisscontact has been supporting young people in Kakuma, Kenya, in strengthening their income-generating capabilities. Through technical skills and financial knowledge, they can improve their livelihood. Since the start of the "Skills for Life" project, more than 3000 people from the refugee camp and the host community have benefited from the training. Participants acquire technical skills in learning groups. This is complemented by structured apprenticeships as well as life skills and business development support. In the third implementation phase, Swisscontact continues to facilitate this unique informal training, which enables the refugees to sustainably provide for their livelihood. Read about what has been achieved so far, approaches and the stories of the young people.
