pdf.pngAnnual Report 2014-2015

2014-2015 was a very challenging year for our organization this calendar year. We have been affected significantly by insecurity situation in the country following some terror attacks on some parts of the country leading to poor performance in the hospitality industry. Against all the challenges that come in such political and economic contexts, including challenges in exploring new opportunities for expansion of our Basic employability Skills Training (BEST) model, we were able to initiate one more new center.

pdf.pngCAP Youth Empowerment Institute Post Training survey Report

Report from Human Development Index (HDI) shows that Kenya’s rate of unemployment in 2017 is equal to those of neighboring Ethiopia and Rwanda combined, highlighting the paradox of economic policies that have sustained growth without generating jobs — culminating to poor distribution of the benefits of growth. In addition, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) for 2017 report says that nearly four in every 10 Kenyans of working age have no jobs — the worst level of unemployment in the region.

Employment among youth in Kenya has continued to decline tremendously in recent years, including in the wake of high graduation levels. Young people especially those from low-income families, high school dropouts, orphans, and those living with disabilities face barriers in completing school and entering the workforce.

CAP Youth Empowerment institute (CAP YEI), a Kenyan NGO, has for the past five years been partnering with the MasterCard Foundation to adapt a model for providing employability skills training and support to vulnerable youth in Kenya. The model is known as Basic Employability Skills Training (BEST) and was first developed in India. BEST codifies the process of employability training through a nine step cycle focused on giving marginalized youth a pathway to entry level jobs, micro business start up, or further learning. In 2015 the CAP YEI program was evaluated and an analysis of the key success factors carried out.
