Severin CraftsmanTraining Center

"Education is the mightiest weapon you can use to change the world"
Nelson Mandela

In cooperation with the German Association of International Cooperation (GIZ) and based on a develoPPP contract, the hotel runs five training workshops for craftsmen professions. The Training Center at the Green Building aims to teach less of theoretical knowledge but more of manual skills with an immediate benefit to the local participants. In dependence on the dual education, craftsmen courses for electricians, plumbers, masons, carpenters and metalworkers are offered.
In our training company that was certificated by the Kenyan Technical, Vocational and Educational Training Authority (TVETA) only trainers certified by TVETA and trained according to German industrial training standards will be engaged. Besides theoretical courses in two classrooms practical courses are held in cooperation with local crafts enterprises and hotels.

In addition, the preventive maintenance programs (PMP) for buildings and machines carried out by Severin Sea Lodge give the participants the ideal possibility to realize their acquired knowledge in their area of training.

After completion of their courses the participants will undertake Ministry of Education certification exam at a TVET Centre. As there is a high demand for well trained skilled staff, the graduates won't have any problems finding a job in the region of Mombasa or open their own little crafts enterprise.

The students will pay a nominal fee and enrolment will comprise, as a minimum requirement, of students who have completed their primary education and are interested in learning craftsmen professions.

Adolescents that can't afford the course fees themselves, can apply for support by our association. At the moment, there are 22 students at Severin Craftsman Training Center we - and you - support.
