In February 2018, the first training courses of VDMA’s technical vocational training project in Kenya will start. VDMA is implementing these courses in Kenya within the framework of its “Skilled Workers for Africa” Initiative. Following the successful project Kick-off event in October 2017, VDMA and its local partner training center - Centurion Systems Limited - presented the training program at a Stakeholder workshop in Nairobi.
The largest German industry association VDMA and the Kenyan technology service provider Centurion have launched a joint project to support the Kenyan food processing industry by providing training and sharing expert advice and experience.
For the past three years, VDMA has been involved in establishing vocational training centers
in sub-Saharan Africa. In Nigeria, a project is currently being implemented in which interested
parties can actively participate in the project with a donation.
