Contract Ref
The Kenya Jobs for Youth Programme
The UK will provide up to £5M over 3 years to support an innovative, market-led youth employment programme that seeks to improve economic opportunities for youth in Kenya. Through a flexible fund facility, the programme will test innovative projects that show potential for large-scale impact in creating new productive jobs for young men and women, with the ambition that proven concepts will be scaled-up either by DFID under a subsequent business case, or by other stakeholders. High-potential projects will be selected under three categories, and awarded an initial grant of up to £100,000 each over 9 – 12 months. Projects that show positive progress will be awarded a second round of grant to further demonstrate sustained potential. DFID Kenya will hire a fund manager to support implementation of the programme including pre-screening calls for proposals, as well as offering coordination and M&E support.
