The youth form the largest part of the Kenyan population at 78%. This group is majorly affected by unemployment, drug abuse, lack of skills and criminal activities. It is for these reasons among others that Zizi Afrique stepped up and aligned itself with the government's agenda of ensuring youth get skills to improve livelihoods through TVET programs.
Speaking during the event, that was held at Kapenguria Vocational Training Center, Mrs. Rebecca Kide elaborated the efforts that the County Government is putting in place to support TVETs. She mentioned the rapid distribution of bursary to aid in cushioning the students against lack of fees.

She mentioned the importance of skills in aligning the youth for employment in the industries that are setting foot in West Pokot County including the Cement Factory at Sebit and fertilizer factory in Chepareria.
All the leaders who spoke at the event thanked the donors and partners for their continued support for the county to improve the livelihoods of its county residents.
The campaign aims at increasing the enrollment rate from the current 1350 to 2000 students in the seven county VTCs
