Improving the Employability of young people from the Construction sector in Kenya through Skills and Enterprise Development is a project offered by KCB Foundation in cooperation with GIZ E4D. The overall project objective is to increase employability and income generation for 3,500 youth in the construction sector in Kenya. The project will also support the provision of construction toolkits to 700 youth to enable them to establish their business enterprises in the construction sector.

About the “Skills and Enterprise Development” Project

The project offers scholarships for vulnerable youth in short technical courses in Building & Construction. This will be achieved through practical oriented vocational training, life skills, work readiness training and enterprise development skills necessary to drive employment and wealth creation in the construction and agriculture sectors.

The scholarship will run between 3 to 6 months in the institutions indicated below of this application form. The certification level will be NITA grade 3.

Construction Sector

Each training intake for the construction sector is expected to run for 6 months and will consist of 3 months classroom training with practical exercises and 3 months industrial attachment with construction projects. Youth will be funneled into employment once they complete their attachment; and youth interested to establish their own micro-enterprises or scale up existing ones will be supported in business development services
