Youth Empowerment Project, Kenya 2017-2019



Video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ipq1R8vxfDs

A look back on the successes our 3 year EC-funded programme that aims to connect youth to job opportunities in Northern Kenya.

This programme ran between 2016 and 2019 in Northern Kenya in the counties of Lamu, Garissa and Mandera. The programme was designed in response to the burgeoning youth unemployment problem that was impacting the quality of life of the younger generation. AKF worked with local governments and CSOs to build the capacity of local institutions making them more equipped to address and respond to the needs of the marginalised. Through YEP, over 5,000 youth were equipped with the skills and tools to access jobs, finance and civic opportunities.

Amade Ussene: These keys unlock five things we take for granted

These are the keys to a lock box where 12 members of a savings group in Mozambique are investing their earnings. With the return on their investments, they have been able to make basic improvements to their homes, like a freezer, an oven, a table and chairs, bowls and plates, and a roof that does not leak.

Here is how it works:

There are no banks on the isolated island of Ibo, Mozambique. Without basic banking services like savings accounts and loans, it is hard to invest in the future. So, with the help of the Aga Khan Foundation, members of this community have connected through a savings group.

Once a week, they meet to save their earnings in a lockbox. The box is locked with three locks, and the keys are held by three members.

Each member saves about 200 Meticals (about five dollars) per week. Their individual savings are tracked with stamps in a deposit book.

Members have the option to borrow from the accumulated savings, which they pay back with 10% interest.

Once a year, the group does a “cash out” – every member withdraws their savings, plus interest earned.

With their savings and added interest, they are able to make significant purchases to improve their lives. And then the savings cycle begins again.

Amade was able to fix the roof on the home he shares with this mother.

Economic development that helps people and societies fulfil their potential

The AKDN undertakes a broad spectrum of activities to stimulate economic growth and development in the countries where it works. Whether it is supporting community-based savings groups or accelerating the growth of small enterprises, or engaging in small- and large-scale infrastructure projects or promoting tourism and tourism-based employment, or restoring historic world monuments and other cultural assets that spark local economies, or investing in national media to provide independent voices for civil society, the underlying principle is the same: To create opportunities for economic growth while developing local human resources over time and contributing to the overall improved quality of life.
