WMK will offer training in the following key areas
• Bee keeping
• Metal work
• Weaving and craft
Our mission is to empower the Pokot with knowledge and resource to make them productive and self-dependent. Our future plan is to build a technical school at Lomut that will address all the educational and employment challenges in the vast west Pokot region and among young people and women. WMK intends to take advantage of the vast resources available in Pokot. This initiative will help in the achievement of some of the MDGs. WMK also has a big plan of building green houses in many areas starting with Kakleshon and kamanau and also to make
available a variety of food crops. We plan to start farming projects in schools where we will empower the primary school children with farming knowledge and skills to help improve the lives of the families. Due to the availability of land and rivers in the area, we hope to educate and train the children on different farming technics. WMK will also plant kales (sukuma wiki),spinach,cabages,tomatoes etc and distribute them to schools and poor families. Each child will also be granted the opportunity to adopt a piece of land, plant a variety of crops and be able to feed their families.
To implement the programme, WMK needs
• 10 water tanks (at least 5000ltrs )
• Farming equipment
• Green house materials
• Seeds for planting ( A variety )
• Trainers to teach the children and adults.
Starting in the year 2015, WMK will start empowerment classes targeting young Pokot men and women who are eager to learn different courses as already mention. The classes will also focus in teaching a combination of lifeskills, literacy and vocational training giving them various market skills as well as the ability to be independent . A tailoring school will be opened at Sigor to train men and women who are focused in starting their own tailoring business in future. By providing the women with training, we are giving them a ray of hope to protect them from the vicious cycle of poverty, hunger and oppression.
