Project Baobab's vision is to educate and empower Kenyan youth to become successful entrepreneurs.
Project Baobab provides free education and entrepreneurial 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 compete for $100 grants to fund their business idea. We are currently operating in 5 communities: Meru, Githunguri, Naivasha, Mai, Mahiu and Olooseos.
Since 2001, Project Baobab has educated over 1000 students and funded approximately 300 new business ventures.
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."
