Challenge

KCB Foundation is scaling up its scholarship program to increase the role of youth in achieving the 2030 sustainable development agenda. The aim is to end extreme poverty through imparting skills that will empower the next generation of entrepreneurs. Courses in construction, automotive and agriculture are being offered to meet the dire need for skilled labor in Kenya. Here in Kayole, where most people live on less than $1 per day, even with a scholarship these vocations are out of reach.

Solution

We at Mtaa Safi have been working side-by-side with unemployed youth in Kayole for years. We have hand-picked ten youth from low-income families with the potential to succeed not only in their studies, but in contributing to their community. Mtaa Safi will provide assistance with transport, lunch and initial fees and expenses. We will also be on hand to share our technical know-how and give encouragement.

Long-Term Impact

These ten youths, having seized this opportunity and applied themselves to achieving will be an example to their peers. The children of Kayole need good role models: young citizens who are succeeding through hard work and diligence, and in turn, contributing to their families and community.
