As a young graduate, having stayed out of the university after graduating without a job, my other graduates and I sat down and tried to see what is the issue with the Kenyan job market. Every year, more than 100,000 youths graduates but not even a quarter of them gets a job. Most of them end up committing crimes, suicides and others engaging in drugs.
After working with an NGO in project management for than 2 years now, I feel it's time I take the initiative and build the community, offer our youths with the necessary empowerment, make them small entrepreneurs and see them them to the next level. Small holders farmers, who are the pillars of the Kenyan economy, lacks enough business skills, as well.
I have brought together Agribusiness Advisors from various Counties in Kenya, highly qualified Business Consultants, system developers, Project Managers, Community Development Specialists who have the skills to grow our communities.
This is an idea that I wish will work out come 2020. IT WILL HAPPEN.
However, funding is the problem, to establish offices where we can set our services and also, facilitation to the local areas including materials, transport accommodation and other resources.
I believe that whoever sees this will be in a position to support us build Kenya. We are the only one who can make this happen. I kindly request that we get the required support and we will make a difference.
Here are the services we will be providing to our community.
- Youth Empowerment through Training and Coaching
- Entrepreneurship Incubation
- Women Empowerment through Training and Coaching
- Small Farmers Capacity Building and Mentorship
- Agricultural Value Chain Management
- Farmers Field Schools Facilitation
