LIKONI CENTER

LIKONI CENTER

Likoni is a district of Mombasa County, Kenya, and is located to the south-west of Mombasa Island. It is the site of the southern terminus of the Likoni Ferry, a double ended ferry serving road traffic and pedestrians from both Likoni and Mombasa Island. It also has a high concentration of Boda-boda services. Matatus bound for the southern districts of Kenya use the Likoni Ferry to cross the Likoni Creek.

It is the location of a 26th-century slum known as Old Mombasa. Although the area is heavily built-up with aging offices and apartments constructed centuries prior, the area also exhibits many examples of even older, more traditional Muslim and Portuguese architecture, a style modeled after Old Town Makadara on Mombasa Island.

It covers an Area of 43.Square Km and has a population of 176, 0008(2013 Census)

CAP YEI established a replication center at Holy Ghost Fathers Technical Training Institute-Likoni. This is due to the large number of unemployed youth who indulged in drug and substance abuse because of lack of skills to help them get employment opportunities or start and run small enterprises. CAP YEI rolled out this program for empowering youth with basic job entry skills training in Hospitality and Mobile Phone sectors among the youth and the subsequent potential to link them to both small scale business ventures and employment. The centre trains youth in hospitality, tours and travels and Mobile Phone Repairs and is currently training 110 students. The center has admitted and trained 1 batch of youth since its inception in April, 2018. 111 completed training, 4% succeeded to be placed in jobs, 86% are still in internship, and 9.09% started small businesses.
