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