WHO WE ARE

KYBT PWANI

Kenya Youth Business Trust Pwani is the local chapter of the Youth Business International (YBI),a programme of The Prince of Wales International Business Leaders Forum. YBI has adopted the model pioneered by the Prince’s Trust in the UK and is now active in 40 countries.

The overall aim is to fight youth unemployment by supporting new business start-ups, and providing young people with personal development opportunities.

WHAT WE DO

Since its establishment, KYBT has worked to fight unemployment among Kenya’s youth by:

Identifying entrepreneurial talents and helping them develop viable business proposals.
Extending collateral-free seed capital after a rigorous business plan review process.
Providing full access to the organization’s local and national business support network for three years &
Partnering the entrepreneurs with a volunteer business mentor who provides advice and support for a period of 3 years.

VISION

To be recognized in enabling disadvantage young people become entrepreneurs.

MISSION

To inspire and transform the youth and community, to create employment through entrepreneurship, training and mentoring.

OBJECTIVES

Why we do it?

Small businesses are the engine of economic development. In nearly every country in the world, the vast majority of jobs are created by small businesses. We enable young aspiring entrepreneurs to create enterprises which can create jobs, bring innovative new products or services to communities and bring trading opportunities to other businesses.

We focus on young people between the ages of 18-35 because young people frequently lack the resources to start up their own business. Young people already make up as much as 40% of the world’s total unemployed, and are almost three times as likely to be unemployed as adults.
