Women & Youth Empowerment


WOMEN AND YOUTH EMPOWERMENT


Uwezo fund was established in the year 2013 with the passage of Uwezo Fund Act. The funds were set aside to support women, youth and persons with disability. In Kibra, since the inception of this fund a total of 142 groups have benefited. This has resulted to significant livelihoods improvement among the supported households. It is also essential to mention that over 1,500 women, youth and persons with disability have been sensitized on youth access to government procurement opportunities, financial literacy, record keeping, business planning, budgeting among others. This has resulted to increased income at household level occasioned by adoption of entrepreneurship culture as a viable employment creation avenue.
