Terms of Reference for Conducting Artisan Training for Semi-skilled and Skilled Artisans Laikipia County.

1. BACKGROUND

Habitat for Humanity Kenya (HFHK) is among the 70 country affiliates of HFH International. In Kenya, we were registered in 1982 as Non-Governmental Organization, with the goal of enabling low income families access decent and affordable shelter. In the last 40 years, HFHK has supported more than 56,000 families across 9 counties in Kenya through housing micro-finance and direct construction. We are currently operating in Laikipia, Homabay, Kisumu, Tana River and Machakos. Our Business Plan (2020-2025) has outlined four Programmatic Areas namely: Financing for owner-led construction; Settlement-Based Practice; Secure Land Tenure; Disaster Risk Reduction & Response (DR3).

In Laikipia County, our work is centered in (5) five locations in the county i.e. Nanyuki, Mukima, Naibor, Marura and Rumuruti for the past five years. During this time, HFH Kenya has constructed 76 houses (25 in Rumuruti and 51 within Nanyuki environs) and an equivalent number of toilets. We have also constructed classrooms and sanitation facilities in 2 public schools – Mukima Secondary School and Mbombo Primary School with a 3rd school project in progress and 2 successful community water boreholes. HFHK’s approach to delivery of homes to vulnerable families is through direct construction where we engage local artisans to construct the house on labor contract while all the other construction materials and logistics are handled directly through the HFHK set policy and procedures. Through the years of implementing the vulnerable group housing, HFHK has faced shortage of skilled “Fundis which is also affirmed by the national statistics which shows that the construction industry comes second in the total number of skill gap and vacancy/employment. Bearing this in mind, masons (fundis) are the major players involved in the erection of houses for the low-income households (LIH) who build incrementally and construction. HFHK recognize that learning route to artisanship applies to workers who have been in employment in the artisanal field and have gained practical experience by working with qualified artisans.

Through this training and subsequent certification of fundis HFHK aims to ensure informally trained artisans are tested, certified and recognized to access decent jobs that further expose them to jobs that reveal them to advanced skills, technologies and building materials. These efforts will support homeowners to access improved quality and affordable housing construction labour.

  • Provide a training report and manual for the entire training exercise.

3. RATIONEL

Habitat for Humanity Kenya has over the years faced several constraints in getting competent masons to work with for its construction project. These have tended to include their inability to offer good construction advise that would lead to better quality houses. In one of the projects that Habitat for Humanity Kenya implemented on mason training, research found out that masons lack general soft skills that would enable them support low income households on incremental construction or home improvements. They generally lack ethical practices and sometimes morals, professionalism in their occupation, time management, communication and entrepreneurial skills. These need to improve if scaling of Habitat Kenya’s activities have to be achieved.
