The Family Group Foundation in leveraging its mission is committed to support enterprise development among the youth through its flagship program TUFUZU. This program aims at catalyzing job and wealth creation for youth engaged in the Kenyan informal sector by equipping them with the necessary skills in vocational and enterprise development.
The focus is on construction trades driven by market demand and aligned to the interest of the individual beneficiary. “We believe that the youth-bulge currently experienced in Kenya can be a major asset for the economy when these young people find appropriate paying employment or other ways of gaining personal economic independence”
Upon satisfactory completion of training and certification, the youth are presented with trade-relevant toolkits aimed at enhancing employability and self-employability. Since its inception in 2021, we have successfully trained 418 Kenyan youth and we are grateful for the support from The Family group of companies and our partner, World Vision Kenya. TUFUZU has enabled us to continue in our mission of uplifting the African families by catalyzing transformative change in the area of youth development and enterprise.
