Our ambition: 100.000 jobs by 2020

Our ambition for 2020 is to have kickstarted 15.000 sustainable businesses that have created 100,000 jobs for youth in rural Kenya.

Our strategy: social business approach

We train youth in social skills, ICT and entrepreneurship. And entrepreneurial is what we are ourselves. We are social entrepreneurs; tackling youth unemployment with a business approach.

When a single training center can generate its own revenues while being lean on its expenses, it can (and should!) become selfsustainable. Only when a training center is selfsustainable, we can scale to different cities and counties unrestricted by the limitations of donor money, but driven by demand. And so far, we experience, that demand from youth in rural Kenya is endless.

We are actively prototyping and improving our business model for Vijana Reloaded, creating the motor for scaling our impact.  In case Vijana Reloaded would make profit in the future, this profit will be used to re-invest in improving the quality of our services and in further scaling our impact.

Roadmap


Roadmap


 

First upcoming activities on our roadmap 

Vijana Reloaded has set targets for innovation and growth for 2016-2017:

  • Continue to run the 1st VR centre in Kakameg, and increase the operational and financial performance towards self-sustainability
  • Start-up 2 more VR training centres in rural Kenya
  • Pilot with existing training providers to adopt our VR curriculum (licensing model)
  • Innovate the content of the curriculum and make the curriculum easy accessible for the trainees at the 3 VR centres by using a e-learning platform, that is able to coop with regular power and internet cuts.
  • Develop, test and scale a ‘light’ training of youth to become an e-merchant. The e-merchant business concept that youth can adopt is that they become an interface between farmer groups and online buyers on the leading online marketplace “OLX”.
  • Register Vijana Reloaded as a local entity (from project organisation to social enterprise)
