About the project
Many students from low-income families in Kenya drop out of school after primary school. Even those who complete high school often lack opportunities to develop the professional skills needed to succeed in the workplace such as problem solving, teamwork, emotional intelligence and communication.
Hatua is working to address this problem by creating a mentoring programme focused on cultivating the professional skills needed in the workplace. The partnership with Theirworld will allow them to develop the curriculum of its e-learning programme and pilot it with 100 students. In addition, they will also provide career coaching to alumni focused on identifying career opportunities, drafting job applications and preparing for interviews.
