Harambee is a youth employment accelerator. We connect employers looking for entry-level talent to young, high-potential work-seekers who are currently locked out of the formal economy. Started in 2011, we recruit candidates where existing corporate recruitment networks do not reach, assess their competencies and match them to jobs where they are most likely to succeed. We then deliver high quality work readiness programmes that directly address the risks identified by employers in taking on first-time workers.
