  4. 4. 2 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Statement of the Problem The Kenya National Human Development Report (UNDP; 2010) defines the youth as people resident in Kenya between 15 and 35 years old. Kenyas population is made up of 63% youth (Ibid). Statistics on joblessness shows that the youth unemployment stands at 70% of thetotal unemployment in Kenya. (AfDB, OECD, UNDP & UNECA; 2012). Unemployment among the youth is therefore a challenging socio-economic problem given that the youth are a dynamic group that can have a significant impact on a countrys economic, political and cultural development. Methods The age targeted by this intervention includes young people from 15 to 29 years of age. These will be individuals who are out of school or have low education. Special consideration will be made to include those who left school early or have a problem with alcohol and drug abuse. The total number of beneficiaries will be 100 from the following constituencies: Makadara constituency; where we shall focus on ShauriMoyo. We shall also be working with youth from KwaNjenga slums in the same constituencies. In Starehe constituency we intend to work in Mathare slums. Kitui Central which is the third constituency in this project is rural compared to the others which are urban. A baseline survey will be conducted at the time the youth make applications with follow up surveys being done every six months after completion for a period of one year. This baseline study will help identify who is eligible and also help in choosing a control group to evaluate the interventions impact. Each beneficiary will undergo a six month training program. Through monitoring and independent evaluations; lessons learnt in the first half of the program will be useful in improving subsequent youth activities. Activities 1. Advertising for the youth development program through relevant media. 2. The provision of vocational skills training to vulnerable youth. 3. Development of partnerships with the private sector in apprenticeship program. 4. Adult literacy classes. 5. Improving the quality of instruction provided in our curriculum. 6. Matching the processes of labour demand and supply in the market. 7. Training on job search skills. 8. Provision of soft skills and counselling for participants. 9. Training on financial and business skills. 10. Workshops and training of participants with MFIs. 11. Identify sensitizers/leaders in 3 different constituencies. 12. Trainings for Youth group/religious group leaders in the three constituencies. 13. Community mobilizations through theatre groups at community level. Expected Outcome 1. Participation of 100 youths in employment creation initiatives. 2. Increased employment rate of the trained youth; both self & formal - in the short & long run. 3. Improved entry rate into quality employment - in sector, level & stability. 4. Improved employable skills for participants. 5. Access to affordable credit to participants. 6.
