The overall programme goal is to address the skills gap that hinders economic growth. By shrinking this gap through training, Generation equips young unemployed people with the expertise to enter and maintain employment, while simultaneously providing Kenyan employers with adequately skilled labor. This labor pool is a necessary condition for sustained economic growth of the country.

The aspiration of the program Generation is to up-skill youth for entry-level employment rests on three major objectives:

  • Equip youth with the technical skills, mindsets and behaviors to enter a fulfilling career.

  • Provide skilled labor for both the formal and informal sector in Kenya. 

  • Create a sustainable and replicable model for skills that can be applied globally, adjusting for local context to solve youth unemployment.
