Championing Youth for Policymaking in Kenya



The project will build 40 youth champions for enhanced policy making in Kenyan on policies that will boost youth empowerment, livelihoods and participation.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Addressing youth concerns through legislative intervention will provide a sustainable solution and is expected to lead to a youth constituency that is generally more content and one that feels catered for by society. This is bound to lead to a more peaceful and prosperous society in general and in this regard our proposed intervention has the general public as the secondary beneficiaries with the youth being the primary beneficiaries.

How will this project solve this problem?

-Creation of 5 Youth Parliamentary Working Groups -24 regional youth consultative forums spread out in all of Kenya’s 8 administrative provinces -Interviews with key informants -training in policymaking

Potential Long Term Impact

• More responsive and inclusive laws that encompass youth concerns in their design • Continuous dialogue between parliament and Kenya’s youth on parliamentary bills and national policies
