Students in Muranga County undergo training on poverty eradication

Over 300 pupils in Muranga County have undergone training on how to eradicate poverty in their families through enhanced food security, health and crime prevention. The training organized by Resource Oriented Development Initiatives (RODI) Kenya is aimed at transforming the society through meaningful interventions and solution making.

The pupils who were empowered to champion gender issues, nutrition and life skills among peers and their families were trained as part of the joint project dubbed “Improving safety and livelihood of workers hired by small holders in Kenya.” The project is implemented jointly by RODI, Ethical Tea Partnership, IDH and the KTDA foundation, and aims to enhance the social economic opportunities of workers of tea small holders farms in three catchment areas (Imenti, Meru County; Kapkoros, Bomet County; and Makomboki, Muranga County) as well as to improve safety in the communities and improve opportunities for children.

“Pupils and parents are equipped with skills that will enable them earn a coin upon completion of the training”
