Income Generating Activities

YWAM-WPM will start to offer training in:-
• Carpentry
• Bee keeping
• FarmingPokot
• Metal work
• Weaving and craft
• Electrical

Our mission is to empower the Pokot with knowledge and resources to make them productive and self-dependent. Our future plan is to build a technical school at Lomut that will address all the educational and employment challenges in the vast west Pokot region and among young people and women. YWAM-WPM intends to take advantage of the vast resources available in Pokot. YWAM-WPM also has a big plan of building green houses in many areas starting with Kakleshon and kamanau and also to make available a variety of food crops. We plan to start farming projects in schools where we will empower the primary school children with farming knowledge and skills to help improve the lives of the families. Due to the availability of land and rivers in the area, we educate and train the children on different farming technics. YWAM-WPM will also plant kales (sukuma wiki),spinach, cabages, tomatoes etc and distribute them to schools and poor families. Each child is granted the opportunity to adopt a piece of land, plant a variety of crops and be able to feed their families.

To implement the programme, YWAM-WPM still needs
• 10 water tanks (at least 5000ltrs )
• Farming equipment
• Green house materials
• Seeds for planting ( A variety )
• Trainers to teach the children and adults.

In the 2015, YWAM-WPM started empowerment classes which targeted young Pokot men and women who were eager to learn different courses as already mention. The classes focuses in teaching a combination of lifeskills, literacy and vocational training giving them various market skills as well as the ability to be independent . By providing the women with training, we are giving them a ray of hope to protect them from the vicious cycle of poverty, hunger and oppression.
