KCJF's big
impact.

catalyzing job creation

Supporting SMEs

We support enterprises that create advancement opportunities for people. Because Kenya has a vibrant and youthful population, it provides an opportunity for accelerated social and economic growth. However, the formal labor market is constrained and cannot take up all youth seeking employment. SMEs plug into this deficit by providing job opportunities. Supporting SMEs is therefore pertinent in catalyzing job creation and improved livelihoods for young and vulnerable populations at scale.

catalyzing Innovative solutions

Technical Assistance

This program aims to provide technical assistance and grant funding to organizations with the potential to implement innovative solutions with the potential to create large-scale, productive jobs for youth and women. The program contains a strong emphasis on learning and evidence; seeking to generate knowledge and data on ways of addressing barriers to job creation and disseminating findings to relevant stakeholders.
