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) .
The consortium will also be a platform for youth led organizations to collaborate on various other projects and conduct joint advocacy on crucial issues raised by the consortium members. The platform is open to Community Based Organizations, Faith Based Organizations and Societies etc.
The consortium targets:
• Youth led organizations from the 47 counties in Kenya that work on education issues and related matters i.e. peace education, entrepreneurship, leaderships, vocational training, mentorship/ life skills training, digital literacy, special needs education or advocacy around these issues.
• The organization should be based in / have networks in the county/ counties they serve.
The identified youth led organizations that express interest in joining the consortium will be held on 29th August, 2016. Venue and other details will be communicated to organizations whose registration is approved.
