- The Project aims to contribute towards the promotion
of rapid economic growth, improved livelihood and poverty reduction by
Increasing income and work / job opportunities for the poor, more specifically
women, disabled and youth, in selected areas by improving productivity,
diversification, and products quality while establishing efficient marketing
services and facilities. As well as improved marketing and business skills of
the project beneficiaries.
- Regarding the youth, at least 90% of the unemployed
are of thirty five years of age or less and many more within that age group are
affected by underemployment. Furthermore, the private sector still suffers from
a widening gap between the demand for skilled labour and the provision of
unskilled labour, as well as the spread of the informal sector. So providing
the youth with the skills (technical and soft skills) needed to improve their
chances will be the main focus, as well as working on the mind-set, that will
also affect their communities as good youth (both men and women) models rise
among their communities.
