Download PDF for this date

The Government of Kenya has reached an agreement with ORT to provide vocational training for the African country’s National Youth Service which aims to give vocational training employment and civic consciousness to young Kenyans who would not otherwise have the opportunity.

Some 7,000 youngsters are expected to be enrolled in the program. Dr. Charles Levinson, technical assistance director of the World ORT Union, made the initial survey on youth training needs in Kenya.
