In addition, the program provides citizens with opportunity to understand the global changes in work and business environment.

Over 10 million young people are currently unemployed and looking for work.

In 2017 to date , the Ministry conducted training to over 15,000 youths across the country. To touch the lives of many Kenyans in the rural areas, my ministry has been working with universities and TVETs to scale the implementation of the program to all the Counties, and other Institutions. So far training has been done in 27 universities and Ajira clubs are being formed. TVETs TOTs have been trained .All the 47 counties have received TOT trainers. Our global competitive advantage lies in skilling our citizens and especially the youth on the future work environment which is digitally enabled.
