The PPDP programme
The Inclusive Growth through Decent Work in the Great Rift Valley Programme, commonly referred to as PPDP is an innovative project based on the Public-Private Development Partnership (PPDP) model and aims at poverty reduction and improved living conditions through decent work and access to rights-based services.
What is the PPDP model and how does it work?
In a PPDP, the public and private sectors make a joint investment in a project implemented by a third party. The objective is to create win-win situations where projects are commercially driven while generating significant improvements for people in poverty.
What makes the PPDP approach unique?
- It is a partnership. The government, private sectors, and the community contributes what they can in line with their mandate, ability, and interests.
- It harnesses the various contributions of different actors to a common cause.
- It has no single donor.
- Contributions can be financial or non-financial.
What is the project about?
The overall development objective of the projects is to reduce poverty and improve living conditions through decent work and access to rights-based services among the rural population in the Great Rift Valley in Kenya.
The project has the following 3 outcomes:
- Outcome 1: Decent jobs resulting from relevant and quality skills provided by selected vocational training centers and other training institutions.
- Outcome 2: Decent jobs resulting from new and growing businesses created.
