The TVET program was introduced in 2013 when we discovered there
was a lack of skilled human capital in our industry . The TVET
program called “Gahanga Industrial Based Training for footwear
manufacturing” created by UZURI K&Y, intends to offer the capacity
building of young people in Rwanda in order to support and reduce
the unemployment rate among the youth, especially women.
Since 2013, UZURI K&Y partnered with the German organization Senior Expert Services (SES) to successfully test the concept of providing training services by an experienced expert from the shoe making industry ,The program continues to result into facilitating the transfer of technical skills from international experts to the youth through introducing new technologies and has also significantly increased the quality of shoes sold locally and those exported internationally as well as fostering the economic growth of the country and made in Rwanda
We believe in bringing a little bit of change to our own communities with one shoe at a time. At least 150 pairs of shoes every year are donated to less privileged children from Gahanga area schools. Our production facility recently donated 150 pairs of shoes and masks to children in 2021 quarter
The manufacturing industry is rapidly evolving and it now highly
involves the use of new technologies, changes in the customer's
demand, and trends. Today the customer’s personalization requests
are very important to our manufacturing processes.
UZURI K&Y tightly focuses on playing a big role in satisfying those demands, and also influences the uses and creation of digital tools to successfully navigate the new manufacturing dynamics.
Through documenting processes, writing down steps taken during every successful result achieved. We wish to groom young people with ambitions, experience and passion to lead the company in the future.
