Airtel Kenya and Pepsi have partnered with the Nairobi County Government to launch an exclusive project that will provide youth groups in the County with 1,000 kiosks as a way of empowering youth to generate sustainable income.
The 1, 000 Airtel Money branded kiosks will be distributed to all city markets, estates and selected location in the Central Business District (CBD). Under the agreement, the kiosks will also operate as Airtel Money agents where customers (both postpaid and prepaid) can also access Airtel Money services where they can register for the service, deposit, withdraw as well as pay for their utility bills.

This unique partnership is also going to make Airtel and Pepsi products and services available to more people within the communities.
Under this project Airtel will train the youth on Entrepreneurial Skills for sustainability and self-efficiency. A plan is underway to roll out a similar initiative with other Counties in the country.
