Digital Opportunity Trust (DOT) and its partner organizations are implementing the Daring to Shift (D2S) project in nine countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and Middle East regions. D2S is working to enhance resilience and economic inclusion among participating unemployed and underemployed youths (aged 18 to 35) and their communities in these nine countries. Over the course of four years, it will develop and support the leadership and decision-making power of young women to enable them to thrive despite the barriers that they face to take advantage of economic opportunities. The project takes an innovative approach to scaling-up youth empowerment, leadership, and social entrepreneurship. The main programming is being done in Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, Jordan, and Lebanon, while also deepening and extending programming in Uganda, Malawi, Zambia, and Ghana.
Objectives of the Baseline Survey
The project has entered its third year of operation in 2022. The purpose of the Outcome Survey is to collect progress level data against the defined results for Year 2 in order to measure the project’s performance in Kenya and document lessons learned and take corrective action, if needed, for the remaining project duration.
