This is Benard Mutua looking proprietorial at Kenbric Vocational Training Centre which he and his friend Patrick Keli (pictured below) have set up in Nguluni over the last month or so. I think the name of the college is formed by taking some of the letters from both guy’s names, mixing them up and then adding some and taking some away.
This is Patrick Keli (what a great name) in the office at the college surrounded by the practise garments that his students made in their dressmaking and tailoring classes. They sew on the paper packages that packets of maize meal come in.
They opened in January and already have thirteen students enrolled for dressmaking and tailoring. They want to teach carpentry and joinery, motor mechanics and driving (that’s why there is a model town painted on a board in the office, thats how you get the “theory” part of your test in Kenya).
Oh and did I mention, they’d like to have a computer too to offer services and training in IT.
