Innovative Practice 2021 on Inclusive Employment and ICT
An app that connects jobseekers with disabilities with job opportunities
Riziki Source is a social enterprise based in Nairobi, Kenya. Launched in 2015, the Riziki Source App facilitates access to information about job opportunities in Kenya for people with disabilities. Offering a variety of accessible formats, anyone can register on the database and provide the various attributes of the job seeker. For companies, the platform offers direct access to people with disabilities as employees. From 2017 to 2020, 150 job seekers found employment through the app.
“Riziki is Swahili and means ‘livelihood’. Riziki Source therefore means ‘source of livelihood’.”
