In conjunction with GIZ and WDA, the first training programme ‘Construction with STRAWTEC’ was successfully delivered in July 2015 at the STRAWTEC TRAINING CENTER within the Nyanza Technical Secondary School (NTSS).
With a focus on knowledge transfer and skills development, ten TVET graduates and three TVET trainers received theoretical and practical instructions from STRAWTEC’s Master Trainer. The course content included training in the safe use of tools, cutting and sealing Strawtec panels and the construction of STRAWTEC walls.
