Tewa providing education for women and girls to access decent jobs in hospitality and tourism

Tewa Training Centre

Tewa provides quality education for women and girls so they can have access to decent jobs in the main local industry, hospitality and tourism.

Tewa provides vocational training opportunities so that local women can have access to good jobs in the local hospitality industry. Kilifi has a number of popular luxury resorts but without training and facilitation, local people cannot compete for decent jobs. Kilifi District is one of the poorest districts in Kenya, where women have a low level of education. With only 48% of girls move into secondary education, Tewa plays a key role in making education more accessible to women and girls in the area.

Their hospitality training programme is geared to meet international standards so that the students can be easily integrated into the professional world and meet the demands of the local job market. The outreach programmes are geared towards uplifting the living standards of women through training in technical skills that will help them be self-sufficient starting up their own industries.

  • Project focus: Vocational training, mentoring
  • Year we started working with Tewa Training Centre: 2015
  • Women and girls directly impacted: 421
