Local Labour Market Assessments (LLMAs): EBS conducts a Labor Market Assessment to ensure that the activity’s youth employment interventions are aligned with the Government of Rwanda (GOR)’s sector priorities. The Local Labor Market Assessment is Intended to guide program implementation to better match youth training opportunities to local labor market demand and therefore to tighten linkages between private sector actors and the supply of skilled labor by highlighting priority sectors and industries for project intervention.

Feasibility studies: EBS conducts feasibility studies that propose projects that responds to labour market demands. This is done through research carried out among the target group and key stakeholders, drawing on the baseline study and supplementary primary and secondary data. Feasibility study provides organisations with sufficient information to justify acceptance, modification or rejection of the anticipated project. Furthermore, the study provides organisations with a well-founded basis for the further development of the project concept, in which the prerequisites, opportunities and risks have all been clarified. By going through this process, the effectiveness of the project will be increased, and unsuitable.

Needs Assessments: Needs Assessments (NAs) are studies to determine the magnitude of challenges and the most impactful intervention/support needed. We use various approaches including visits, surveys and observation, analysis of data that lead to informed programming and support.

GROW your business/skills program: The GROW your business/skills program provide youth with practical skills and knowledge to improve their livelihoods activities, either their own businesses or wage employment opportunities. These are youth already operating their own businesses, or are currently wage employed in various workplaces. The curriculum aims to provide them with opportunities to develop and use an innovative mindset to approach business growth. It provides practical skills and a structure from which they can develop and grow their businesses. The curriculum will enable youth to grow their customer base, build networks; grow their finance and access technology.
