Our Story

RTRC’s History

Founded in 2011, the Rarieda Training and Resource Centre (RTRC) has made tremendous progress in youth technical vocational education and training in Siaya County. RTRC has reached a point of having an effective group of instructors, an assortment of course offerings and a growing number of students. RTRC looks forward to experiencing even more growth and amazing achievements.

The future of RTRC stems from three key areas: (1) Youth training, (2) Community training (including adult and continuing education), and (3) Rafiki and RTRC instructor training. By developing and strengthening these three areas in the community, RTRC will help create a well-educated and trained workforce, which is a prerequisite for sustainable development.

Equipping our youth, community and staff with the relevant skills needed to make effective contributions in the labour market, RTRC contributes not only to their own well-being but also to the productive potential of our rural economy.
