Overview :

The youth employment crisis is a global development priority. In much of West Africa including countries like The Gambia and Guinea high youth unemployment, significant proportions of working poor in vulnerable employment, and economic disengagement run the risk of creating disaffection, driving migration, inciting social unrest, and slowing progress towards development goals. There is an urgent need for a sustainable model to build youth resilience, especially for young women, to successfully navigate school-to-work transitions, while adopting a capabilities approach to broaden youth employment opportunities. These approaches need to enhance youth engagement with their local economies and support their access to opportunities within their immediate financial ecosystem.

Please see attached RFP for further details. Submission deadline is 19th March 2019.
