Caritas Isiolo prioritizes youth related issues. This is because the youths are among the most marginalized in socio-economic outcomes both locally and nationally. Caritas Isiolo’s primary focus is on empowering and uplifting the youth, particularly those facing socio-economic challenges. The organization recognizes that more than 76,353 youths are among the most marginalized locally, and it actively collaborates with partners, private sectors, and local Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions to address their needs.
The program employs a comprehensive approach, aiming to provide quality, equitable, and inclusive technical skills to vulnerable youths. The overarching goal is to equip them with lifelong, sustainable skills, fostering positive social behavior change. The key interventions of the program include:
The program is strategically tailored to address the specific needs of Youth Not in Education, Employment, or Training (NEET). By targeting this demographic, the department aims to provide opportunities for growth and development to youths facing challenges in accessing education or employment.
