“Link the Hidden Treasure” empowers vulnerable women in Korogocho slums to earn decent livelihoods in a safe environment. As a Youth to Youth Fund (Y2YF) grantee, Link the Hidden Treasure has provided 63 young women with the entrepreneurship and technical skills necessary to convert waste materials into marketable accessories (i.e. necklaces from waste paper, recycling of hair additions, and liquid soap production), facilitating the creation of 23 businesses and 44 jobs. They are now scaling up their initiative to create a larger impact. The Y2YF is a competitive grant scheme implemented by the International Labour Organization-Youth Entrepreneurship Facility and an in-country implementing partner in Kenya, the Ustadi Foundation.
