Come January, the project schedule was on course as plans for content development were made. Several working committee meetings were held and a number of project activities such as design and preparation of the posters, advertising cards and banner, identification of and booking of the training venue, advertising in the media as well as sourcing for training facilitators was done.

Finally, the big day came. We opened the training sessions on 21st April, at 9am with registration of participants and commenced with a session on self identity. Here, participants were encouraged to identify with self, set their goals and develop personal vision and mission. Mr. Nobby Nyata, of Hazel Consultants, successfully took us through this session. The sessions that followed, Nobby took participants through leadership topics such as what a leader is not, integrity, qualities of a good leader.

Then followed three hours of Training of Trainers session with Mr. Hasea of Kenya Technical Teachers Training College (KTTC). He very ably took participants through sessions in Topic identification, Topic Sequencing, Lesson development and planning as well as live practical sessions by some of the participants pointing out best teaching practices for learners.

We finally had the Entrepreneurship sessions with Mr. Wachira. He very cleverly enabled participants to visualize opportunities at their disposal, encouraging them to identify areas of their gifting and talents and how they could maximize this in the business arena. This session had a lot of group work which gave participants a realistic approach to entrepreneurship. They also learnt the types of businesses that they could open, the legal aspects of businesses as well as basic financial management of businesses.

The training took place at Cardinal Otunga Plaza from 21st to 24th April, from 8am to 4pm. Training materials, Tea and lunch was provided.

Some of the facilitators such as Nobby and Wachira promised to send the soft training material via email.

The training sessions were interactive and participatory at the end of which participants were asked to grade the whole session. Ninety five per cent of participants gave the training sessions five (5) on a scale of 1 to 5 where 5 is Excellent and 1 poor. They requested to have a similar, improved training session in November 2015. Five percent of participants asked us to improve on our marketing strategy so that more youth could benefit from these very empowering training sessions. This we promised to do.

The sessions were concluded with the issuing of certificates to all sponsored participants.
