St. Francis Training Center started in 1997, as a program to cater for refugees coming to Kenya. Its main focus was to train them English and Kiswahili languages. Thereafter, it became evident that refugees required crucial technical skills. The training centre was created to empower them. In 2013, St. Francis Training Center was accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education allowing it to become a Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) centre.
The training center has a competitive advantage over most of the faith-based and secular vocational training institutions like Jewel College, St. Kizito Technical Institution.
At St. Francis, we know the importance of engaging all stakeholders. We work closely with The Catholic Church, KNEC, and Ministry of Education through TVET, National Industrial Training Authority, Waumini Radio and Africa 118.
