The pride and prejudice in Impact : a numbers problem.


In order to address youth unemployability, ICCO and its partners are working on the project ‘Youth employment create opportunities at home in Mali’. In this project we develop value chains in key labour intensive economic sectors, like horticulture and waste management.


The project aims to train 8,620 young people to run their own business, including 2,586 women and 1,293 returnees. The project ‘Youth employment create opportunities at home in Mali’ (EJOM, acronym for the French title  ‘L’Emploi des Jeunes crée les Opportunités ici au Mali’) aims to have 75% of these young people working by 2021 in the regions of Koulikoro, Kayes, Gao and the district of Bamako.
