Coca-Cola, USAid eye 1,000 jobs in enterprise drive


At least 1,000 youth in Kisii will get job opportunities in a programme by a US government agency and the Coca-Cola Company through its local bottling partner Almasi Beverages.

The United States Agency for International Development’s (USAid) Kenya Youth Employment and Skills (K-YES) will collaborate with the company in an initiative dubbed Kuza Kazi that seeks to address the high rate of unemployment in the county.
