Mission Statement

Nyamboyo Technical School is transforming young lives, families and communities through vocational education and economic opportunity in Nyamboyo, Kenya.

Description

Nyamboyo Technical is a 3-year vocational school with an entrepreneurial bent! Located in Nyamboyo Village in south-western Kenya, we provide professional, technical education to the economically disadvantaged teens and young adults of the community. They become certified professionals in technical fields where there is growing demand for skilled employees and new businesses. Students also learn business management by running enterprises within the school. In Jan 2020, we launched the first student-led business, selling kerosene.

Ultimately, we are building a positive, prosperous future for our youth, as employees, small business owners, and serial entrepreneurs!

NTS is led by Executive Director, Jones Obiria, a native of Nyamboro, who founded the school because he felt an obligation to lead after he, himself was able to escape poverty through the gift of education. Here in the U.S., a small, dedicated team of two are working to help raise awareness and funds for NTS. In Jones’ words "People save their own lives. Our job is to provide the opportunity. I hope you will join our journey."
