Training of Kazi Mtaani Beneficiaries

The Kazi Mtaani Programme is an initiative designed to cushion the most vulnerable youth in the informal settlements from the effects of COVID-19 pandemic.

The objective of the programme is to provide a form of social protection for workers whose prospects for daily or casual work has been disrupted by the containment policies put in place to limit the spread of COVID-19. Through this initiative, residents are recruited to undertake projects concentrated in and around informal settlements with   the aim of improving the environment, service delivery and providing income generation opportunities.

The State Department for Youth Affairs is currently implementing the training component of Kazi Mtaani Programme in the 47 Counties to equip youth with industry relevant skills to ensure they are employable and productive post COVID – 19 Crisis.

It is expected that after the training the youth will develop a saving culture, form and register groups, establish social enterprises and apply for funding from Government Affirmative Funds (YEDF, NGAAF, Women Enterprise Fund and Uwezo Fund).

So far, over 200,000 youth have been trained on Entrepreneurship, Financing for business, Life Skills, Citizenship and National Values.
