JRS is an International organization with a mission to accompany, serve and advocate on behalf of refugees and other forcibly displaced persons. We have been involved in livelihoods and education activities for urban refugees in Nairobi for the last 21 years with an established presence among both the refugees and local communities. In particular, JRS is implementing a non-interest loan and a pilot agribusiness projects in Nairobi as part of the livelihoods intervention. The project’s objective is to increase the number of forcibly displaced people integrated to the labour market through income generating activities, skills training and wage employment.

JRS intends to offer business skills training to 65 beneficiaries comprising 25 non-interest loans/grant, and 40 agribusiness beneficiaries who are mainly refugees freeing conflict in their countries of origin and are resident in Nairobi.

The goal of this training is to equip the beneficiaries with entrepreneurial skills for management of their businesses to increase business stability, growth and sustainability.
