Titre : APPUI À LA COMPÉTENCE PROFESSIONNELLE, L’ENTREPRENARIAT ET L’EMPLOI DES JEUNES ET DES FEMMES DANS LES RÉGIONS RURALES DU BURKINA FASO - OEZA KOFINANZIERUNG

Pays : Burkina Faso

Code projet : 6544-01/2017

Période d’exécution : 01.01.2018 // 30.06.2021

Contexte
The project will cover the five intervention regions Cascades, Boucle du Mouhoun, Nord, Hauts Bassins, and Province of Soum in the Sahel region. The security situation in those areas bordering with crisis-shaken Mali remains particularly fragile, the outlook for neighbouring Mali being negative. The intervention zone is characterized by a young and steadily growing, and particularly vulnerable population regarding the possible impact of endogenous and exogenous shocks, natively influencing local economic dynamism and activity. The more, promotion of economic and where necessary equity based opportunities, security and development represent a central contribution to increased resilience, peace and stability in the area.

Overall goal
“TUUMA” is the word for “work” in Mossi, the most spoken language in Burkina Faso. The project aims at supporting the professional and entrepreneurial skills as well as improving the employment opportunities of women and youth in rural communities in Burkina Faso. It seeks to increase economic opportunities, as well as access to stable and permanent employment for women and youth, in order to contribute to the overall objective of the EU Trust Fund to address root causes of destabilisation, forced displacement and irregular migration by promoting economic and equal opportunities, security and development in the Sahel region and Lake Chad area.

Target group / Beneficiaries
The direct beneficiaries are 13.000 women and young people aged 15-35 with an interest in economic activities and entrepreneurship. Furthermore, the private sector, collective enterprises driven particularly by co-operations, associations, groups of young producers and women, the local and regional authorities, as well as vocational training centres are amongst the direct beneficiaries.
Indirect beneficiaries are the people in the five intervention areas, as well as the administrative structures of the state.
