Culture promotion income generation for Youth

Article 11 of the Kenya Constitution recognizes culture as the foundation of the nation and as the cumulative civilization of the Kenyan people and nation.

The constitution, therefore, promotes all forms of cultural expression of Kenya people including local languages, literature, performing arts, visual arts, traditional celebrations, traditional cuisine, traditional medicine, traditional technologies, information and communication, mass media, publications, libraries and archives as well as other cultural heritage platforms.

Uwezo College has invested in gathering cultural information and knowledge about the Kamba and Kikuyu having been motivated by the cultural challenges that confront our youth from mixed marriages, in diaspora, or simply adult people living in cosmopolitan areas.

shown that most Kenyan are curious to understand who they are culturally. We have also noted that culture can create a lot of job opportunities to the youth in the fields of ;

  • Drama
  • Dances
  • Herbal medicine
  • Food and drinks
  • Dressing and accessories
  • Education etc

The interest in learning one’s culture should never be viewed as promotion of negative ethnicity or promoting what some might mistakenly call dark uncivilized past as result of brain-washing by the West. It is therefore to emphasize that apart from economic empowerment this course also aims to;

  1. To provide a reasonable degree of information to those who want to understand their identity as Kenyan people of a particular Tribe;

  2. To dispel the myth that every cultural practice was backward and uncivilized; and

  3. To provide one stop source of information to those from mixed marriages who want to understand aspects of their in laws culture.
