PEACE AND PROSPERITY PROJECT:AN INNOVATIVE PATH FOR KENYA’S YOUTH
The “Peace and prosperity through job creation – an innovative path for Kenya’s youth” project started in October 2016 aiming to provide an innovative dimension to Hand in Hand’s job creation model by offering a concrete way to tackle the interlinked problem of societal instability and youth unemployment. The 3 year project is funded by the Swedish Postcode Lottery. The Hand in Hand Youth Programme rests on two avenues: unlocking the door to the job market for young people by providing them with theoretical tools (entrepreneurial and vocational skills) and breaking the structural barriers to entrepreneurship by raising the status of self-employment and introducing entrepreneurship as a school topic.
