EASTRIP is a five-year project funded by the World Bank and the Governments of Ethiopia, Kenya, and Tanzania to increase access and improve the quality of TVET programs that will be offered by the selected Regional Flagship TVET Institutes (RFTIs). The project is designed to address skills shortage and mismatch, by providing technical, financial, and industry partnerships to improve the relevance and quality of training programs in the 16 selected RFTIs.
"The East Africa Skills for Transformation and Regional Integration Project (EASTRIP) brings a regional approach to developing the specialized TVET skills by creating a small cluster of regional TVET Centers of Excellence. Each center will specialize in specific sectors and occupations with niche programs in highly specialized TVET diploma and degree programs, as well as industry recognized short-term courses. Mobility of students, graduates, and faculty will facilitate a healthy exchange of skilled labor within the region so that each country does not have to produce all the skills at once. The sharing of standards, curriculum, and training facilities will help reduce costs for each center. At the same time, demonstrations will help inform and guide the broader array of national TVET reforms in these countries. The regional TVET Centers of Excellence can serve the labor needs of major regional infrastructure projects."
