Investing in youth's and women's economic empowerment & skills development is one of the most effective ways to drive progress on poverty eradication and inclusive economic growth.To increase access to decent employment and entrepreneurial opportunities ; Takanimali provides training to youths and women.

Quality Apprenticeship

An apprenticeship is a system of training a new generation of practitioners of a trade or profession with on-the-job training and often some accompanying study (classroom work and reading).
Our training helps the apprentices learn their trade or profession, in exchange for their continued labor for an agreed period after they have achieved measurable competencies.
At Takanimali we offer quality apprenticeship that enables the trainees to reach the professional certification level of competence.

Entrepreneurship & Self Employment

In low and middle income countries like Kenya, self employment is the dominant form of entrepreneurship and accounts for an important share of youths and women employment. At Takanimali we impart the aforementioned skills to our trainees to make the highly competitive in the already crowded market.

Population Snapshot

Rate of Unemployment

Unemployment in Kenya

Rate of unemployment in Kenya is the highest in the East African region hitting a new high at 39.1 %. (United Nations Human Development Index (HDI) 2017). Highest than its neighbouring Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda, and Rwanda. The rate is elevated for women than for men.

Unemployment among Kenya's Youth

Unemployment among Kenya’s Youth is estimated to stand at 17.6%

Dependeny Ratio in Kenya

High level of unemployment = one of the highest dependency ratios in the world at 75.4% (large number of youths – children under 15 years in every family)

Waste Recycling Process

Recycle. Reuse. Reduce.

Modern civilization cannot be imagined without the use of paper. Large amount of papers are being used in everyday life; among them most of are treated as useless and they are thrown here and there after using. Sometimes it causes environmental pollution.

Today, 90% of paper pulp is made of wood. Paper production accounts for about 35% of felled trees, and represents 1.2% of the world’s total economic output.

Recycling one ton of newsprint saves about 1 ton of wood while recycling 1 ton of printing or copier paper saves more than 2 tons of wood. So, it is the necessity of paper waste management to save the environment from its annihilation and pollution.

Newsprint papers, Printing paper and tissue can be made by this recycling process that can be repeated at least 5 to seven times.

In Kenya the main concern regarding PET and the environment is the pollution associated with plastics. According to the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, approximately 50 million plastic bottles are used annually. Due to their non – biodegradable nature, plastics can stay in the environment long after they are disposed especially when shielded from direct sunlight either due to being buried in landfills, hidden in forests or under water.

The issue of plastic waste management in Kenya is also associated with the general poor state of solid waste management and the poor infrastructure. Waste management companies are unable to cope with the growing percentage of refuse generated by the increasing population in urban areas.

Creation of plastic recycling chains which involves collection; sorting and separation; label removing; washing and shredding; separation by floating among other processes all which require manpower translating to job creation/employment.

Scrap metal recycling is a process as well as being the basis for a powerful industry. Scrap metal recycling involves the recovery and processing of scrap metal from end-of-life products or structures, as well as from manufacturing scrap, so that it can be introduced as a raw material in the production of new goods. It can be recycled repeatedly with no degradation of its properties.

It provides the raw material for new products, while offering a much lower carbon footprint and more efficient utilisation of resources than new material.

Aside from environmental benefits, metal recycling is an extremely powerful economic activity.

The important benefits of metal recycling versus the creation of virgin metal include a reduction in energy consumption as well as in the use of other materials. For example recycled aluminium requires 95 percent less energy, while copper needs 90 percent less, and steel 56 percent less. Additionally, the recycling of one ton of steel avoids the use of 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone.

  • Glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without loss in quality or purity.
  • Glass is made from readily-available domestic materials, such as sand, soda ash, limestone and “cullet,” the industry term for furnace-ready recycled glass.
  • The only material used in greater volumes than cullet is sand. These materials are mixed, or “batched,” heated to a temperature of 2600 to 2800 degrees Fahrenheit and molded into the desired shape.
  • Recycled glass can be substituted for up to 95% of raw materials.
  • Manufacturers benefit from recycling in several ways: Recycled glass reduces emissions and consumption of raw materials, extends the life of plant equipment, such as furnaces, and saves energy.
  • Recycled glass containers are always needed because glass manufacturers require high-quality recycled container glass to meet market demands for new glass containers.
