The Economic Projects Transformational Facility [EPTF] was founded by The Navigators Kenya with the objective of spurring enterprise development as a panacea to the high rates of unemployment among the youths and the ensuing poverty. EPTF takes a comprehensive and integrative approach to promoting entrepreneurship development and has adopted a two-fold approach that involves training and business development support services [BDSS].
EPTF’s entrepreneurship training addresses unemployment and poverty by supporting the creation and expansion of business enterprises. The training seeks to challenge existing mind-sets of many young people who believe that formal employment is the only way to generate income. At the end of the training, many young people become job creators as opposed to job seekers.
