Youth unemployment and underemployment is a major development challenge around the world and particularly in Kenya which has one of the highest rates of youth unemployment globally. This case explores the CLA approach of Kenya Youth Employment and Skills Program (K-YES), a five-year program funded by USAID that enhances employment opportunities for unemployed and underemployed Kenyan youth (aged 18-35) who have not completed secondary education.
This case draws on lessons learned from the USAID/Pakistan Community Resilience Office’s (CRO’s) “safe charity” campaign to highlight ways in which USAID and its partners can leverage CLA to improve the performance of countering violent extremism (CVE) programming.
Synchronizing with the end of Nobo Jatra's Mid Term Evaluation, a Theory of Change (ToC) review facilitated by The TOPs Program served as a valuable opportunity to use learning and evidence as a basis to revise the pathways, outputs and outcomes in the ToC and strengthen the layering, sequencing, integration, and overall prioritization of interventions.
Together, the GIP and MELI decided that the CLA approach was the best means for GIP to build strategic self-reliance through strategic collaboration with these two key institutional partners and to foster collaboration between these key institutions for developing government transparency and accountability in El Salvador.
CaTSS therefore implemented MSH’s Standards of Technical Excellence for Project Implementation (STE), which establishes and reinforces best practices in project management on the basis of a dynamic process of continuous learning and improvement.
