Round 1: Youth-to-Youth Fund Kenya 2010

The deadline to receive applications is closed

For more information about the second round of the Youth-to-Youth Fund in Kenya, please refer to the Information Note. For general information about Youth-to-Youth Fund in East Africa, see the main page.

The Youth-to-Youth Fund in Kenya is administered by the Kenya Community Development Foundation (KCDF), a national partner of the Youth Entrerepreneurship Facility and the Youth Employment Network.

The Youth-to-Youth Fund is a concrete offer to youth-led organizations in Kenya to actively engage in youth entrepreneurship development and to identify innovative, small-scale solutions that can be replicated by others. In line with our focus on green employment and entrepreneurship, a portion of the Y2Y Fund grants in Kenya are earmarked for projects that support the promotion of green entrepreneurship opportunities for youth.

The first call for proposals in July 2010 resulted in 156 applications. The 29 most innovative proposals were selected by a panel of national experts to continue to the second round. KCDF trained two representatives from these organizations in project design and proposal writing. Following the training, organizations submitted a revised and more detailed proposal for the next round of competition. Out of these the 18 proposals with the most potential were selected to proceed to the final round during which the finalist organizations showcased their projects and a jury of representatives from the public, private and civil sectors in Kenya interviewed and selected the grant winners.

Ten organizations were selected to receive the Y2Y Fund grant package of funding and capacity building to implement their entrepreneurship development projects. These projects will be implemented with technical support from KCDF, YEF and its BDS partner organizations.

For general information about the Youth-to-Youth Fund, please refer to the Youth Entrepreneurship Faclity's main page and to the country specific Information Notes.
