Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) is pleased to announce the launch of three (3) requests for proposals (RFPs) for thematic partnerships within the framework of the Young Africa Works-Kenya: Youth Employability through TVET project.

The 5-year project (2020-2025) with funding from Mastercard Foundation, will strengthen the quality of Kenyan TVET institutions and systems by developing 26 Centers of Excellence (COEs) as model institutions. The project will increase the participation of young Kenyans, particularly women, in market-relevant skills training programs to increase the number of youths transitioning to dignified and fulfilling work.

The following 3 RFPs are being launched:

Deadline Extension

CICan is extending the deadline for the request for proposals on the following thematic partnerships for Young Africa Works-Kenya: Youth Employability through TVET project to April 27, 2020 at 5:00 pm (EST).

Please note that all timelines in sections 1.6 and 2.5 of the RFP will shift by 3 weeks.

Eligible and interested colleges/institutes can request additional project background documents by emailing Nathalie Garon at ngaron@collegesinstitutes.ca.

We acknowledge that the current Covid-19 pandemic makes thinking about getting involved in this work more challenging, but now that the pandemic is a top priority for all countries, we hope that the situation will improve over the coming months and that many of you will still plan to participate in this exciting initiative.
Please note that due to technical challenges we will not be able to proceed with a Webinar as initially planned. However, CICan will publish a weekly Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) list every Thursday until April 23rd 2020. This list will include all questions received regarding the RFP process and corresponding responses.
