Indeed, Triodos Facet is still working together with VETA, and in particular the Morogoro Vocational Teachers Training College (MVTTC), in promoting entrepreneurship among youth in vocational training.

In the first 4 years of the project, we developed a tailor-made Entrepreneurship curriculum for VETA in English and Swahili, including a Teachers manual and Trainees handbook. We also used some elements of KAB, as well as the ILO business game. In the current 4-year project, we are upscaling the implementation of the curriculum to 120 VTCs nationwide.
