The “Rise Project” by the Tree of Life under the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation has now been launched. The 3-year programme focuses on strengthening inclusion, health, and education for children and youth, in particular those who are vulnerable and in conflict with the law.
Speaking during the launch, Chamber President Mr. Richard Ngatia appreciated the initiative as an impetus for youth economic empowerment and pledged the support of the Chamber to integrate the project beneficiaries into the business community.
As the private sector partner for the “Rise project”, the Chamber will support the youth beneficiaries through capacity building, internships, and on-job training to improve their capacities for employment and self-employment.
Other partners include AMREF Health Africa, National Council on Administration of Justice, National Industrial Training Authority, Directorate of Children Services, Tangaza University and Yusudi Yajali.
