Tribus-TSG, a Centum Investment subsidiary in patnership with the Mastercard Foundation in Kenya, is set to open 10 employment centers across 10 different counties in Kenya that will help the unemployed youth directly link to their potential employers under its Young Africa Works initiative.
The Foundation is committing Sh137 million ($1.36 million) to finance both the employee wages and equipping of the first 10 pilot Ajiry Centres.
The Centres will work with the national government, county governments, private sector, educational institutions, training providers, associations, and NGOs to create an open, free employment platform.
The Ajiry Centres are currently in development and with the Ajiry App having been launched in May 2019, job seekers will get real-time job opportunities and on-demand workforce services.
“We have already registered in our database more than 23,000 skills and advertised more than 9,000 jobs since the launch of the Ajiry App. The intention is to tackle youth unemployment and empower small businesses,” Centum’s Chief Executive Officer, James Mworia says.
The Ajiry Progressive Web App, The “MyHustle” section will enable small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and individuals to advertise their products free of charge.
