Education and Youth

Speeches Shim

As the responsibility for leadership passes to the next generation, Africa’s future and its global competitiveness will be driven by academically gifted and entrepreneurial young people empowered to lead. USAID is providing state-of-the-art education to millions of Kenyan children, expanding educational and employment opportunities for young adults, and preparing a new generation of young African leaders with the skills and mindset to transform the region and the continent.

In 2022, USAID and the Government of Kenya (GOK) through National Treasury and the Ministry of Education signed a five-year agreement outlining the terms of its partnership in education, youth workforce development, and youth leadership programming. The GOK has committed to co-finance at least 15 percent of the total joint investments in education and youth development priorities in Kenya and East Africa.
