    • Project

      The problem of employment in Tana River seems to be two-fold: Lack of employer’s knowledge about psychosocial disability and the lack of knowledge amongst youth, especially young women with psychosocial disabilities on how to apply for jobs and participate in the work environment.

      The IkuzeAfrica#EmployHer project facilitates the employment of women with psychosocial disabilities in Tana River County through job coaching and providing linkages with employers, who are sensitised on working with young people with psychosocial disabilities by following a specially designed training programme.

      The training is tailored to suit different employers and for different types of psychosocial disabilities. The impact of the intervention is measured (pre and post-intervention) by assessing knowledge, attitudes, and practices of employing people with disabilities among the employers.
