Addressing issues in livelihoods is critical to our work given the increasing income disparities and joblessness in Kenya. This makes it possible for the urban residents to have the purchasing power. Consequently, these vulnerable women and youth are able to put food on their table for their households.

Identification of vulnerable women and youth is done by well trained social workers. After the identification, vetting is done using to determine the most vulnerable women and youth as the need is great and our resources are limited.

After the vetting process, the women and youth are taken through entrepreneurship or vocational training .
After the training, those in entrepreneurship are allowed to do more market research for their micro-enterprises. This enables them come up with the final micro - enterprise that they want to start.

For the youth in vocational training, they are trained and then placed as apprentices in the relevant industry where they have been trained. This also enables them to acquire practical and market relevant skills which make them more employable or even self employed.

After this, those in business are encouraged to form savings and loans groups as a sustainability strategy. This is because after the required business monitoring period is over, these businesses are not dependent on the organisation.

During the monitoring period, our staff record both the quantitative and qualitative aspects of change in our beneficiaries households for MEAL (Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning Purposes).
