Livelihoods mentorship involves supporting the livelihood clients, who include Kenyans, refugees and asylum seekers, in the management of cases and the provision of guidance in running their enterprises. These trainings are delivered in order to ensure their understanding and ability to develop their skills. The skills are used either to start a micro-business or to restart a collapsed enterprise due to many challenges faced within their areas of residence.
The livelihoods mentors understand all needs of the beneficiaries in order to refer them to internal/external service providers while following up with them to ensure sustainability of the livelihood intervention. They also match the applicants with the most appropriate job/business opportunities in the outside market.
The activity supports the apprentices for the wage employment track and entrepreneurs developing business plans, business models, financial projections and explores vocational training opportunities through the micro-enterprise track.
