When Peter Lepedo was a young man, his world was turned topsy-turvy by bandits when they raided his village in Baragoi, Samburu County at night, a memory permanently etched in his mind. He vividly recalls the terror, the flying bullets, and the many lives lost. When he woke up in a hospital bed, he found he had lost a limb as a result of the attack. Many in his community thought his life was hopeless and devoid of a future. Peter, on the other hand, refused to be defined by his disability.
Determined to rise above all odds and improve his situation, he joined NRT Trading’s Ujuzi Manyattani Program and enrolled in the mobile phone repair course, which provided him with the knowledge, skills, and equipment he needed to start his own phone repair business.
Peter is now the proud owner of a profitable phone repair store in Karare, Songa Community Conservancy. His skills have made life easier for many in his village, who previously had to travel to Marsabit Town to have their phones repaired.
Ujuzi Manyattani empowers youth and women in underprivileged communities in northern Kenya by training them on a wide range of vocational skills, including phone repair, hairdressing, and motorbike repair.
The Program equips participants with skills and resources to start their own enterprises, making them self-sufficient and increasing their resilience.
Since its inception, Ujuzi Manyattani has benefitted at least 779 youth and women in the region.
