By Virginia Mwangi / January 4, 2019




The KCB Foundation has launched 2Jiajiri recruitment which seeks to create jobs and wealth through targeted skills development in the informal sector.

The 2Jiajiri program through the Foundation in conjunction with various partners targets to recruit 10,000 beneficiaries in agribusiness, automotive engineering, beauty, and personal care, building and construction, and domestic services at various technical training institutions in Nairobi, Machakos, Kilifi, Nakuru, Nyeri, Uasin Gishu, Kisumu and Mombasa counties.

The program takes pride in 23,059 beneficiaries in the country for the year 2018 contributing in a remarkable way in uplifting both the SME’s and creating opportunities for the unemployed Kenyans.

The Agribusiness sector got a boost from the program with 13,953 beneficiaries while 4,459 benefited in the building and construction sector. 2,119 beauticians in the personal care industry and 1,145 domestic service companies benefited from the program. Automotive engineering also had its share of support as it registered 1,383 beneficiaries within 2018.

The milestones the KCB 2Jiajiri program has witnessed reflects on their objective to empower and equip unemployed and out-of-school youth into growing micro-enterprises by providing them with technical skill training opportunities as well as up-skilling and certifying existing micro-entrepreneurs who wish to move their business from the informal to the formal sector.

The 2019 interviews will be conducted across the country from 7th to 15th January 2019 between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm at the respective technical training institutions.

The successful applicants will then commence studies running between three to six months at the respective institutions from 21st January 2019.

The recruitment is open for scholarships under 2jiajiri as well as the Skills and Enterprise Development project implemented in partnership with the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ).
