Challenge

There are many young people in Kenya who have talents that can be used to contribute to solving societal challenges in sectors such as education, sanitation, health, and housing among others. However, they often lack platforms and opportunities to contribute their talents. They might have ideas to develop ideas into projects that have high levels of social impact, but have no one or limited support to implement those ideas. As such, the society misses out the opportunity to use their talents.

Solution

The proposed project will enable at least 30 young people with social innovative skills to transform their ideas into actual projects that have high levels of social impact in various sectors of society. The project will train the 30 young people on practical skills of transforming ideas into projects and project implementation skills. It will also train them on various aspects of project implementation including securing financial support and sustainability of their social impact projects.

Long-Term Impact

The project will directly impact 30 young social innovators in Kenya and indirectly impact at least 150 other young people across Kenya who will be directly involved in the implementation of the 30 project or as beneficiaries through employment created through their implementation. In addition, communities where these young people come from will directly benefit from the social impact of these projects in sectors such as education, agriculture and policy influence projects among others.
