About Us

Jobs for Africa is a Swiss registered foundation whose main objective is to promote job creation, skills development and entrepreneurship for the youth in Africa. In recognition of the facts that the private sector is the creator of jobs and that governments provide an enabling environment for enterprises to be created and developed, Jobs for Africa seeks to promote private-public partnerships on youth employment.

Mentoring Youth Entrepreneurs in Agribusiness

According to McKinsey Global Institute, Africa has more than 60 per cent of the world’s remaining arable land yet the continent is a net importer of food. With a youthful population that is finding it increasingly hard to find formal jobs, the agricultural sector offers opportunities. We are very pleased to see Gedion Mburu, a young man we mentored venturing into horticultural export business and thus creating jobs for his peers, integrating youth and women farmers into the global supply chain through contract farming and above all earning his country Kenya the much needed foreign exchange. He has been featured by BBC News. Kudos to Gedion!
