The Access to Government Procurement Opportunities (AGPO) program aims to empower youth, women, and persons with disabilities (PWDs) by facilitating their participation in government procurement
Launched to provide a level playing field, AGPO specifically targets youth, women of all ages, and persons with disabilities, ensuring they have equitable access to government procurement opportunities.
Registering for government services can at times be a very tedious process. Just the thought of queuing long hours to register for a particular service can be enough to dissuade you from attempting to register for AGPO.
AGPO stands as a testament to Kenya’s commitment to diversity and inclusivity in economic development, fostering a more inclusive entrepreneurial landscape.
By easing the entry barriers, AGPO aims to catalyze economic empowerment and growth within these demographics.
