EQUIP3 assessed the labor markets and consulted with numerous stakeholders in Kenya and Rwanda to identify viable youth livelihood opportunities in three sectors: information and communications technology (ICT), agriculture, and health. By gathering quantitative and qualitative information on the needs, interests, and capacities of employers, youth, and others, these assessments identified specific occupations in these three sectors that offer significant entry-level employment or entrepreneurial opportunities for disadvantaged youth in the target countries. The opportunity profiles presented in this toolkit are a direct result of these country assessments.
