The European Union | Youth Power for Peace and Prosperity
The European Union is a trusted and long standing partner of Young Africa. Currently, we are implementing YP3; a project funded by and in cooperation with The European Union. During this eighteen month project we aim to economically empower youth in Mozambique.
The project YP3 is based on a consortium between Young Africa International, Young Africa Mozambique and the Foundation of Development Cooperation (FDC). Together we will implement activities to economically empower youth and support them to become active agents of change in their communities. As well as increasing their knowledge and capacities to participate, engage and initiate peacebuilding and peace. We target to economically empower 706 youths and support them to become active agents of peace and change in their communities in Mozambique.
The European Union is a strong partner for Young Africa. This programme builds on three earlier contracts with the European Union in Mozambique.
In 2015, Young Africa Mozambique and Light for The World started an initiative to facilitate inclusion of rural youths and youths with disabilities in our TVET programmes. Thus, from March 2015 to December 2019, we implemented the project “Pathways to (Self) Employment”. Increasing acces s to TVET for rural youth and youth with disabilities, thereby preparing them for (self) employment and improved livelihoods.
The project was funded by The European Union and The Austrian Development Cooperation. Read the full project summary here.
