UK High Commissioner to Kenya, Nic Hailey, has continued his visit to Mombasa by pledging an additional Ksh100m for the Kuza Project. The funding will come through the Department of International Development’s UKaid, with the aim of boosting youth employment and skills.
The Kuza Project is a three year initiative aimed at addressing the root causes of youth unemployment in Kenya’s second city, and encouraging productive and sustainable job creation for the city’s young people.
The project consists of a combination of skills development, market development, and policy support. The project’s intended beneficiaries are un-employed and underemployed mean and women aged between 18 and 30 whose incomes are at the lowest end of the scale.
