Empowering Out-of-School Youth

In early 2020, ICCAO developed the Kijiwe Kipya program aimed at assisting out-of-school youth, with a special focus on out-of-school girls, launched on April 4th, 2020. The program seeks to mitigate teen pregnancies and child marriages while addressing unemployment rates and alleviating the burden on the government.

Objectives:

  1. Reach Out-of-School Youth: Create a safe space for youth, provide career guidance, and foster engagement in development activities.
  2. Reduce Unemployment: Provide solutions to financial barriers and lack of entrepreneurial skills, offering support in raising capital and increasing participation in development initiatives.

Activities:

  1. Youth Groups Fund Channel: Connect youth groups to financial or social capital channels and impart financial management skills.
  2. Vocational Training Skills Development: Provide business facilities and knowledge to equip youth with technical skills and financial management know-how in their respective business sectors.
  3. Competition Programs: Conduct the Kijiwe Kipya challenge to instill a competitive spirit among youth, fostering creativity, innovation, and the generation of new business ideas.

Through these initiatives, Kijiwe Kipya aims to empower out-of-school youth, contribute to their personal and professional development, and create positive social and economic impacts in the community.
