Kenya aims to grow the manufacturing contribution to GDP to 20pc by 2030, which requires the country to have sufficient skilled labour to work in the manufacturing sector.

Over the past years, we have seen a steady rise in girls excelling in STEM subjects that drive economic growth and innovation globally. Our learners must be well-equipped to participate in these transformative sectors.
