Who Are They?
Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator tackles youth unemployment by using data, innovation, partnerships and on-the-ground experience to build pragmatic, implementable solutions that get young people into income-earning opportunities. To date, Harambee has helped young people find their way into over 100 000 jobs and work opportunities and has provided 600 000 young people with the tools and skills to enable them to more effectively search for work on their own.
The Endowment is supporting one of Harambee’s innovative solutions to youth unemployment as an outcome’s funder in the pilot phase of a Social Impact Bond called the Inclusive Youth Employment Pay-for-Performance initiative. This initiative seeks to demonstrate a scalable and sustainable financing mechanism to catalyze and accelerate innovative skilling pathways and income-earning opportunities for advanced jobs in growth sectors of the economy.
