Vocational Traninig Centers in Githongo, Nkubu, Muthara and Maua are set to benefit from an additional 82 fashion design and garment making machines issued by the Meru County administration today.
According to Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi, the machines worth over Ksh 8 Million are part of his administration’s continued efforts to upscale quality and relevance in the institutions.
Speaking at the Nkubu Vocational Training College, the Governor reiterated his determination to make the 30 County Vocational Centers business centers, by enhancing the skills of the youthful population as well as generating alternative income sources for the institutions.
“Vocational Training Centers need to specialize in marketable trade areas. This will help them stand out among the many other institutions of learning in the country,” Mr. Murungi said.
The new equipment includes fabric/cloth cutting machines, multipurpose sewing machines and overlock sewing machines among others.
