COVID-19 Updates

To prevent the spread of Covid-19, Generation Kenya programs have been scaled back. In Nairobi and Mombasa, we are running in person classes for our Financial Services Sales Programme, Digital Customer Service Programme, and the Sewing Machine Operator Programme. Where possible, some programs have been shifted to blended delivery, a mix of reduced in-classroom days and remote learning.

We have also organized an online training programme for frontline healthcare professionals to care for COVID patients along with the Jumuiya ya Kaunti za Pwani and Pwani University. The online COVID-19 upskilling training programme has been certified by the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentists Council (which in turn allows participants to earn CPD points) offers practical, demonstration-based, and immediately applicable training in the areas of infection prevention and control, all in line with the Ministry of Health and WHO guidelines.

The course is being offered free of charge and is self-paced. Certificates will be issued upon completion of the course.

Thank you to our learners, staff, and partners for the ongoing support during these challenging times.

What we do

Our vision: A meaningful career and sustained well-being for every person, anywhere in the world.

Our mission: We transform education to employment systems to prepare, place and support people into life-changing careers that would otherwise be inaccessible.

Employers face a range of problems in entry level jobs—difficulty finding skilled talent, lackluster on-the-job performance, and high turnover in important roles. We can help address all of these challenges with our unique approach to training and our determined young graduates.
