Our Approach

CAP youth Empowerment Institute implements Basic Employability Skills Training (BEST) model through public-private partnerships for its sustainability and scalability. CAP YEI mobilizes and enrolls qualified target of youth by involving grass root government officials, local CBOs, network of youth organizations, youth and community leaders, and religious gatherings. CAP YEI skills training is guided by labor force demand in each area where our training is located as informed by market scan research and revisits.

The BEST model was originally developed in India and rapidly expanded across Asia. The model was first adapted to Africa in 2008 in Egypt. In 2011 at a regional meeting organised in Addis Ababa, a decision was made to expand the model to other parts of Africa. Since then it has been implemented in diverse contexts in Sudan, South Sudan, Tanzania and Kenya in the process reaching over 30,000 marginalized youth. Some of the beneficiaries of BEST programs have included ex-combatants, youth in conflict with the law, unwed mothers, school drop outs and many others in both urban and rural settings.
