Make an impact by helping young people to get better education

Organised for: KAYEC Trust

Hello all,

 

My name is Nils, I am currently teaching Mathematics and Entrepreneurship to KAYEC Vocational Trainees. KAYEC stands for Katutura Youth Enterprise Centre, which is a Namibian non-profit (registered trust T 250/99), opened by the first president of Namibia in 1995. The institution incubates new education solutions in partnership with the Namibian Government and private partners to assist vulnerable youth gain employable skills; such as Plumbing, Electrical General,  Automotive Technician, Welding, Clothing Production, Early Childhood Development, Joinery and Cabinet Making, Tractor Backhoe Loader and Forklift Operators.

 

This non-profit organization gives young people the possibility to make money or even to build their own business in their field of specialization afterward. 

 

Over the last weeks, I got to know a lot of these trainees who are eager to take with both hands this second opportunity at KAYEC to realign their lives; however the Centre has not sufficient financial resources to ensure that every trainee counts with all required equipment and tools.  

 

Currently, KAYEC is looking for funding for the following projects:

 

1. The automotive workshop requires engine model kits for diesel and petrol. 

 

2. The centre counts with a library, however technology has outlived the content of the availabe books, hence the need to purchase current trade related books. 

 

3. Current teaching methodologies use multimedia to visualize the training content, therefore KAYEC would like to modernize three classrooms with projectors, computers and sound systems. This will make it easier for the teachers to explain and easier for the trainees to understand.

 

Please help me to raise funds to achieve the needs above. Every donation will contribute 500 young Namibians per year to become more employable.
