About Kenya Youth Business Trust Pwani

KYBT Pwani’s mission is to inspire and transform the youth and community in Mombasa, to create employment through entrepreneurship, training and mentoring. By doing so, their vision is to be the recognised leader in enabling disadvantaged young people become entrepreneurs in Mombasa.

The programme provides aspiring and emerging entrepreneurs with invaluable resources and experience to help them hone key entrepreneurial and business skills related to creativity, communication, leadership and team building. This not only fosters entrepreneurship but, more importantly, positive and inspirational leadership in the local community.

KYBT Pwani was established as the second regional office of KYBT, headquartered in Nairobi, in 2009. In 2015, KYBT Mombasa became an independent legal entity serving the Mombasa and coastal area, and in 2017 rebranded to KYBT Pwani to reflect the work carried out along Kenya’s coast region (Pwani mean ‘coast’ in Kiswahili).

 Since its establishment in 2003, KYBT has worked to fight unemployment among Kenya’s youth by:

  • Identifying entrepreneurial talents and helping them develop viable business proposals
  • Extending collateral-free seed capital after a rigorous business plan review process
  • Providing full access to the organisation’s local and national business support network for three years
  • Partnering the entrepreneurs with a volunteer business mentor who provides advice and support for a period of 3 years.
