About the Leadership & Entrepreneurship Program
The project works with both in-school and out of school youth who are passionate about entrepreneurship, and who are in need of skills development and support necessary for the establishment and expansion of viable enterprises.
Additionally, the program seeks to nurture the leadership skills and abilities of young people with the aim of empowering them to become change makers in their communities. We also encourage them to initiate development initiatives in their communities.
Youth who complete the 22 weeks program are able to start social enterprises in their communities responding to one or more sustainable development goals, these youth are also able to secure sustainable employment opportunities and support their needs and those of their families.
The program was started 3 years ago and since then, over 500 youths have graduated from the program. 150 social enterprises have been designed and implemented by these youth and over 300 jobs have been created. 50% of the youth who have successfully graduated from the program have secured sustainable employment.

- Passionate mentors & leadership coaches for program graduates
