Welcome to Project Baobab
Project Baobab's vision is to educate and empower Kenyan youth to become successful entrepreneurs.
Project Baobab provides entrepreneurial education and grants to youth, especially women, through a specialized life skills and business curriculum in Kenya, a country of 40% unemployment with 58% of the people living below a $2 a day. Upon graduation, our students present their business plans, and compete for a $100 grant to fund their business idea.

One of our graduates, Jennifer Shukuru, writes this about her experience of Project Baobab,
"Am doing well here in Kenya and am happily running my business . . . we are becoming big business ladies and now everybody is happy about our Project Baobab. My parents are appreciating how Baobab has moulded me to be a very important person in my community. I now have an ambition of being a very great person."
We would also like to thank are strategic partner Essential Skills Advantage for developing reading materials and education resources for the youths of Project Baobab.
