About Future Bora
In Kenya, vulnerable and under-served youth population groups - such as orphans, youths from vulnerable and marginalized communities, persons with disabilities, youths affected by conflict, single mothers, and street youths- are even more adversely affected by the challenges of unemployment as they are unable to participate and benefit from mainstream employment interventions. In addition to the challenges faced by most of the unemployed youth, these youth groups face obstacles that are unique to their environments. Some of these challenges include stigmatization and misconceptions, sole childcare responsibilities, lack of mentorship, and limited access to adaptive learning.
Future Bora is an initiative of the Government of Kenya under the Kenya Youth Employment and Opportunities Project (KYEOP). By supporting interventions that are tailored to the local and highly specific needs of the most vulnerable youth, the initiative aims to expand economic opportunities for the most vulnerable and under-served Kenyan youth.
The Future Bora Initiative is implemented by the Ministry of ICT, Innovation and Youth Affairs (MIIYA) and funded by the World Bank. Intellecap Advisory Services is the management firm for this initiative.
