Case IH partnership with Don Bosco Embu

Young people in the 21st century require technical skills to enhance industrialization. A team from CASE IH company visited Don Bosco – Embu for a partnership discussion. CASE IH deals with equipment that supports mechanized agriculture, and they would like to offer training to Don Bosco trainees on how to operate and repair such equipment.

She underscored that her vision is to make the institution the center of excellence in mechanized agriculture and CASE tractor operator training, where other institutes will come for learning and benchmarking.

“To make this training sustainable, we will offer training of trainers and ensure that the competence transfer is seamless. The trained trainers will be supported to replicate the acquired competence to the young people following well-established TOYOTA standards,” Ms. Velma affirmed.

Speaking during the meeting Br. John Njuguna, deputy director DBTech Africa reiterated the need for multi-stakeholder partnership in the skill development ecosystem. He further pointed out that this initiative, apart from offering employment for young people along the food value chain, will help achieve the goal of food security.
