To end poverty and create decent jobs for young people, FAF focuses on bridging the skill gaps for youth in attaining 21st-century entrepreneurial skills. In the long run, it economically empowers young women and men, further enabling them to contribute to the development of their communities. This pillar’s critical interventions include Mentorship programs to inspire and motivate young people and share knowledge and experiences with influential young businessmen and women. Training and technical guidance emphasise equipping young people with skills to build their capacity in entrepreneurship, leadership, and life skills, empowering young women to safely participate in economic activities, including linkages to sexual reproductive health and rights and creating awareness and advocating for women’s rights and human rights enforcement in East Africa.
