An agreement is forming between the Nairobi City County Government and an Italian Non-Governmental Organization known as NO ONE OUT ITALY-KENYA. The objective of this partnership is to promote inclusive vocational education for vulnerable youth and young people with disabilities.
NO ONE OUT aims to benefit two distinct groups: young students aged 15-35 and educational staff and stakeholders above 35.

Over a 36-month period, we have planned to enhance the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) system, promoting equality and accessibility for students with disabilities.”
“The county government has agreed to support the collaboration by facilitating access to VTCs, allocating resources, and participating in key project meetings. NO ONE OUT and its partners committed to providing technical and financial support for improving the project activities and conducting research and evaluation.” Said the Chief Officer
The agreement will include provisions for budget and fund disbursement, rights to shared materials and outputs, dispute settlement through mutual agreement or arbitration, organizing, planning, and reporting responsibilities, and confidentiality obligations.
