Access to skills are critical for persons with disabilities. As opportunities for formal employment in Kenya are few and far in between, most PWDs are focusing on self employment. To succeed as a self employed entrepreneur, there is need to empower these budding employers with entrepreneurial and accountancy skills for business management. To this end, the EmployAble II project in partnership with Junior Achievement organized the first cohort of of 30 youths with disabilities at Kenyatta University. This training has six cohorts that focus on entrepreneurial skills.

The trainees have an opportunity to develop winning business ideas that would then be funded and mentored through the Junior Achievement program. The cohort also focus on Market driven skills and 21st century skills that would equip the trained for life long learning and self improvement.
