» Agenda 

To answer the issue of youth employment which is of great acuity for the West and Central Africa region, CORAF/WECARD has solicited financial support from the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) to initiate the project "Support to the launch of knowledge for youth jobs through the Web Canal." The implementation of this project required the financial contribution of the West Africa Agricultural Productivity Programme (PPAAO/WAAPP). This project is designed as a general objective of increasing the use of internet through search results as a source of new job opportunities for young school.
