Next Generation Kenya
Next Generation Kenya is a joint project of the British Council and the UK Department for International Development (DfID) through the East Africa Research Fund (EARF). It follows similar Next Generation projects in Tanzania, South Africa, Pakistan and Nigeria in researching the perceptions and aspirations of young people in countries experiencing youth bulges; producing recommendations for improved policies to capitalise on the potential of the next generation; and giving a voice to young people as they attempt to shape their countries’ future. The project combines policy-relevant research with a strategic communications campaign to disseminate the findings widely and use them to enhance young people’s ability to influence the policy environment.
