-- Following a recent site visit with KEF Country Director Dominic Muasya, we are excited to announce that the KEF has been selected by Johnson & Johnson as its implementing partner in Kenya for its acclaimed Bridge to Employment (BTE) program.
Designed to introduce high school students to careers in health care, BTE sets out to connect young minds with real-world experiences and establish partnerships with businesses, educators and community-based organizations to prepare students for the demands and challenges in the health care industry and increasingly technical world. Under KEF’s guidance, Bridge to Employment will mentor 50 students from Form 2 (10th grade) through their graduation. We are privileged to take part in this valuable program that will put Kenyan high school students on a solid career path in the health profession.
This initiative is also made possible through the assistance of FHI360o, an organization that empowers individuals and their communities via locally driven solutions for human development.
