What is Kazi Mtaani?

The Kazi Mtaani Programme is a project that aims to safeguard the most vulnerable young people in informal settlements from the COVID-19 pandemic's effects.

The purpose of the initiative is to provide some form of social protection for workers whose chances of finding regular or casual work have been harmed by COVID-19 containment measures. 

Residents are recruited to work on projects in and around informal settlements in order to improve the environment, improve service delivery, and provide opportunities for income generation.

How Much Does Kazi Mtaani Pay?

In Kenya, the government program has clearly attracted a large number of young people.

Enlisted staff in Nairobi, Kisumu, and Mombasa were paid a daily wage of Ksh653 in the first phase. Those from the other municipalities, on the other hand, received Ksh600.

The recruitment bracket was raised to 270,000 in phase two, decreasing the daily wage offered. Each enrolled person was paid Ksh455 each day.
