The project aims to improve employment prospects for the youth and promoting entrepreneurship and business creation in Eastern Africa. Its immediate objectives are to strengthen the capacity of existing vocational training centres with whom ICEP is already cooperating in Kenya and Uganda, and help these centres improve the quality and increase the relevance of their programs, including technical and entrepreneurial skills. The Project is expected to directly benefit nine vocational training centres and their staff, including around 116 teachers and trainers, as well as 4,200 underprivileged youths and 2,700 small entrepreneurs that will be trained in these centres over the project lifespan.
