Kenya Education for Employment Program (KEFEP)

Background Information

Drawing on CICan members’ expertise and experience, KEFEP will develop institutional partnerships between Kenyan TVET institutions and agencies and Canadian colleges and institutes to:

• Improve the quality and relevance of skills training programs at Kenyan TVET institutions
• Increase the effectiveness of Kenyan TVET institutions in delivering accessible and gender-responsive skills training programs that meet industry needs
