This report summarizes the findings of an entrepreneurship study conducted by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Huguka Dukore Akazi Kanoze (HDAK) activity from March to May 2021. Implemented by EDC and a consortium of international and Rwandan implementing partners, the HDAK activity seeks to increase market-ready skills and access to stable employment and self-employment opportunities for 40,000 Rwandan male and female vulnerable youth ages 16–30 years. The purpose of this study was to better understand the extent to which HDAK has contributed to improved outcomes for youth who seek self-employment as a main livelihoods strategy. To date, HDAK has served over 40,000 young people, of which 11,060 have started businesses upon completion of the program.
