ABRIDGED TERMS OF REFERENCE
Consulting Services for Training of RYAF project teams to conduct online training for adaptation to COVID -19 and the future in the project “scaling up rural youth access to inclusive financial services for entrepreneurship and employment’.
Introduction The Eastern African Farmers’ Federation (EAFF) was formed in 2001 as a non-political, non- profit and democratic organization, whose role is to voice the concerns and interests of farmers of the region to enhance their social-economic status and regional cohesiveness. EAFF’s establishment was championed by national farmers’ organizations from Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and DR Congo. Membership was subsequently extended to Rwanda, Burundi, Eritrea, Djibouti, Ethiopia and South Sudan.
EAFF membership is now composed of 23 farmer organizations serving about 20 million farmers. EAFF is one of the IFAD funded investment projects in East Africa and will benefit directly from the outcomes, results and best practices that will be generated and disseminated in this project. EAFF secured grant funding from IFAD to implement a youth project dubbed “scaling up rural youth access to inclusive financial services for entrepreneurship and employment’. This project is being implemented in 4 countries i.e. Kenya, Uganda, Burundi and Rwanda.
The overall goal of this project is to enhance the current process of raising capital for poor rural youth enterprises (start-up/existing/scale-ups) by mitigating financial institutions risks, increasing interactions with industry experts, acquiring new knowledge, and sharing success stories. One in four businesses generally fail before their second year, and half do not survive beyond the fifth year; a situation experienced by many youth-led agri-enterprises in Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda. This is a growing concern in countries which has a very young population coupled with a high youth unemployment rate. Economically viable agribusinesses could help to address this challenge; thriving youth-led agribusinesses are vital for job creation, make agri-enterprises attractive to the youth, and hence could contribute towards alleviating youth unemployment.
