DFID Call for Grant Proposals for the Kenya Jobs for Youth Programme
17 Jan, 2018
The UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) is currently seeking applications for its Kenya Jobs for Youth Programme.
The UK will provide up to £5M over 3 years to support an innovative, market-led youth employment programme that seeks to improve economic opportunities for youth in Kenya.
Through a flexible fund facility, the programme will test innovative projects that show potential for large-scale impact in creating new productive jobs for young men and women, with the ambition that proven concepts will be scaled-up either by DFID under a subsequent business case, or by other stakeholders.
High-potential projects will be selected under three categories, and awarded an initial grant of up to £100,000 each over 9 – 12 months. Projects that show positive progress will be awarded a second round of grant to further demonstrate sustained potential.
Interested applicants must apply using DFID supplier portal.
