Resume:

This program supports vulnerable groups of youth and workers from poor communities in Kenya and Tanzania to get access to decent work and be able to improve their living conditions. The program consist of two components; in the first component the capacity of trade unions to secure compliance with labour best practices is improved through strengthening of their organisational capacity as well as their capacity to advocate for workers’ rights and welfare. Additionally the program seeks to strengthen the capacity of labour inspectors to secure work place compliance with labour laws. The second program component builds the capacity of youth partner organisations to enable them to strengthen the effort of cooperation and advocacy towards local governments to secure prober support of youth to get access to decent jobs or business start-up support in Mombasa, Kisumu and Dar Es Salaam. The partners in the 2 components will support each other across components and with specific emphasis on advocacy and campaigns for decent work possibilities for youth.
