FUNDING WINDOWS - Support for work seekers

The Support for Work Seekers Funding Window seeks to link active work-seekers, especially the youth, to formal sector opportunities and job placement.

This window targets initiatives aimed at facilitating rapid access to employment and work-related training for unemployed people, particularly the youth.

Projects should clearly demonstrate the potential to ultimately place work-seekers in the work environment. Broadly, this can be through the provision of training, entrepreneurial development, and job placement services. In essence, the projects should be able to leverage their capacity for skills development to create linkages between those that have successfully completed the training and job placement. The goal is to improve the quality and supply of labour.

An example of a project funded through the Support for Work Seekers Funding Window is the Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator.
