Project Overview

The Ajira Poa! project is an innovative blend of activities from all three-mixing bowls: stimulation of demand (jobs), enrichment of supply (skills), and a foundation of guidance from a range of public and private sector actors to help young Kenyans navigate the treacherous waters of the world of work and guide them toward a path that makes sense for their own personal journey.

Ajira Poa! Is designed to be a sustainable model for youth employment/self-employment through the provision of career counselling and various life skills reinforced by an integrated digital blended learning platform and supported by labour-market specific, public, and private sector initiatives to help youth become more employable through the attainment of relevant skills.

OBJECTIVE: To increase the number of Kenyan youths who are gainfully employed or self-employed through a replicable, self-sustainable job and skills development model.
