Small businesses are in dire need of skilled labor to survive, and so are many skilled and passionate Kenyans, who are looking for work, and have time to volunteer. Please join this campaign, hopefully you can find what you are looking for once new normalcy commences.
Companies, from large corporations to micro-entrepreneurs, are facing tough times in the wake of COVID-19. According to the UN economic forum 2020, over half of the global workforce is facing a risk of job loss if they haven’t lost them already. Could volunteering help companies retain industry-specific skills? Please tell us what your experiences have been, more so on volunteering in this campaign.

Sign up and tap in to the network of companies that are looking for someone like you.
Are there functions in your business that can be undertaken by volunteers on-site or remotely? You could also involve the vast talent pool available on community-based activities, experts that are willing to support you in the right course that you are running. InBusiness will support you if you need more guidance with disability inclusion in your workplace. Please express your interest here
InBusiness Initiative brings together advocates of disability inclusion such as the private sector and Government to co-create models of sustainably engaging people with disabilities in employment, in business, or education. This initiative creates a space to explore what works in terms of economic empowerment of people with disabilities and give tools, learnings, practical cases to institutions that are working towards being inclusive.
While governments impose measures to limit the spread of COVID-19, most of us are left to experience the effects of these uncertain times. It could be losing a livelihood, earning less, your business failing, or even contracting the virus. Its scale is also devastating. Such uncertainty is present in all corners of the world. We sure can not take it all away – we wish we could. We can, however, be certain that, by coming together, we are exponentially raising our odds of overcoming the negative economic effects the Pandemic is inflicting. The Kenyan economy is not isolated; it is vulnerable too.
Our way of making sure that we are supporting each other is building opportunities where capital can be re-allocated, shared, and donated. We want you to know that our thoughts are with you. This is one of the ways we think we can help. Help us take care of our vulnerable businesses too, and by proxy, our jobs.
We would love to hear from you. Reach out to us. We are happy to hear from you.
Reach out to us. We look forward to helping you find it.
This is the end
