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