Creating youth opportunities through mushrooms

June 27, 2017 5414 115 2 Comments


Paul KISIANGANI was unemployed. In 2006, along with 24 other youths, he started producing and selling fresh and dried oyster mushrooms.

Paul was motivated to start Galaxy United Youth Group (GUYG) because of the high level of unemployment among youths in Kenya. He chose mushroom production because it does not require a lot of land or capital to start off.

“This is a low input investment that youth who are unemployed can venture into. And women who don’t have money can also venture in it. So, this is an appropriate enterprise for youth empowerment,” says Paul.
