STATE EMPLOYMENT AND EXPENDITURE FOR RESULTS PROJECT (SEEFOR)

Component A – Youth Employment and Access to Socio-Economic services – are mainly youths who are unemployed and/or seeking to be trained in vocational and technical courses in order to find jobs or set up on their own, the technical and vocational training institutions themselves and the state ministries of education and agriculture.
In addition, the state agencies responsible for public works and waste management will be provided with technical assistance for their oversight function on the sub-component for youth employment.
The beneficiaries of the CDD sub-component are community groups and associations in the four participating states, including farmers, women groups and youths in the rural areas.
