Social Enterprise Society of Kenya: Business Environment Reform for Social Enterprises
In order to support the social enterprise sector in Kenya, the Social Enterprise Society of Kenya (SESOK) aims to create a Social Enterprise Policy. To ensure relevance and ownership, a Public-Private Dialogue process should be part of the policy-making. Additionally, SESOK’s capacities to pursue the adoption and mainstreaming of the Social Enterprise Policy should be strengthened.
The ICR Facility supports SESOK in taking the draft of the Social Enterprise Policy for Kenya through a Public-Private Dialogue process, update the draft and develop an action plan to be used for the adoption/mainstreaming of the updated Social Enterprise Policy. The support furthermore includes the development of a resource mobilisation framework and trainings on policy development and advocacy and how to build a sustainable Business Member Organisation.
SESOK will have a finalised Social Enterprise Policy to engage the Kenyan Ministry of Industrialization, Trade and Enterprise in creating a more inclusive and sustainable business environment. Furthermore, SESOK will be equipped to participate in policy development and advocacy and supporting its members. All these factors will lead to an improved business environment for social enterprises in Kenya and thus contribute to the creation of more decent jobs for women, young people and vulnerable groups.
