As a team from the Commission led by Commissioner Hadija Juma and CEO James Katule met with the Governor Uasin Gishu County, H.E Jonathan Bii, and other senior officials of the county executive, they marvelled at the achievements in the area since 2013 in terms of health, agriculture, water, roads, education and urban development.
The Impact of Vocational Training Centres
At the heart of Uasin Gishu’s progress lies its state-of-the-art Vocational Training Centres (VTCs). Unlike the traditional village polytechnics, these centres resemble universities in terms of infrastructure and facilities. They offer comprehensive training to students, equipping them with the skills necessary to succeed in the workforce. Remarkably, some of the infrastructure at these centres is constructed by the students themselves, providing them with practical experience and a sense of ownership.
