LIVELIHOODS AND EMPOWERMENT
Youth Alive! Kenya continues to intervene among the target beneficiaries to address the spiraling unemployment rates among youth. Currently YAK is working with youth in the target 12 counties to intervene on the youth unemployment situation in the Country. Through this interventions in the informal sector, women domestic and small scale traders have been empowered through small enterprises, improved access to service delivery within these informal settlements and engagement with the county government of Nairobi which resulted in consolidation of the six (6) key development priorities issues in the informal settlement(water-sanitation and health (WASH), electricity, access roads, ECD Centers, markets, and public health facilities) ending up being incorporated in County Integrated Development Plan (CIPD) 2018-2022 of the Nairobi County.
