World Bank to empower Kisumu youth

04 March 2014, 22:02

Kisumu - The World Bank plans to launch an internship programme to empower jobless youth in Kisumu County.

The programme that will be implemented by the Kenya Youth Empowerment Project aims at developing skills in entrepreneurship and give labour experience to thousands of unemployed youth.

The programme will target young people between the ages of 15 and 29 years, who completed their form four education at least one year ago, but are not able to further their education.

Kisumu County Director for Youth and Gender Development, Timothy Kajwang’ said the programme will take six months.

He advised eligible youth to consult their nearest CDF or Youth Development offices for further details.

Meanwhile, Kajwang disclosed that the long awaited Uwezo funds have been disbursed to the Counties.

He clarified that the funds will only be availed to registered youth, women and people with disabilities who have been registered by social services, cooperatives or registrar of societies.

“Registration must have taken place at least 6 months before application,” he said. 

The Director added that groups that meet the requirements stated will receive between KES 50,000 to KES 500,000 for development.

He however did not disclose how much money was allocated for the County.

At the same time, Kajwang’ advised youth, women and people with disabilities whose groups have been registered to transform such groups into business entities by registering business names or companies in order to participate in the 30% reserved government procurement opportunities.
