A Review of Lessons Learnt on ASST Programming from the Horn of Africa: Ethiopia, Kenya & Somalia

By 2035, the number of young people joining the working age population is projected to reach 1.5 billion globally, and yet, youth unemployment is already an acute challenge across low and middle-income countries. Through its Adolescent Skills for Successful Transition (ASST) approach, SC builds youth’s technical and transferable life skills capacities, increases opportunities for decent work, and fosters youth-inclusive employment environments. This review documents lessons learnt from five SC programmes across three countries, Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia, working with deprived and at-risk youth (including from irregular migration and radicalisation) to create employment using the ASST approach. The five programmes were: RDDP programme (2017-2020); RESET II (2018-2019) and RESET Plus (2018-2021) all in Ethiopia; BSIF programme (2014-2019) in Kenya; and DSRIS programme (2017-2019) in Somalia.
