Invitation to join Kenya Youth Education Consortium

Tuwakuze Africa held a youth consultation and sensitization forum on curriculum reforms in Kenya held on 18th June, 2016 at 680 Hotel. The forum was attended by youth leaders from various youth led organizations as well as a representative from Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) and a member of the National Committee on Curriculum Reforms.

Following this forum, a need for youth organizations to work together and engage collectively on issues around education so as to be formally involved in processes such as the curriculum reforms as stakeholders was identified. Furthermore, by working with other youth led organizations we add value to each other’s work, provide platform to highlight our diverse views and better represent interest of Kenyan youth.

As a follow up to implement recommendations on ways to formally involve youth in curriculum reforms process in Kenya and engage KICD on various other issues, Tuwakuze Africa is calling for other youth led organizations to be part of a consortium; the Kenya Youth Education Consortium (KYEC) .
