Improving work opportunities for young people in the Mano River Union (Youth-to-Youth fund)

Aimed at youth-led organizations in Guinea, the YEN, in collaboration with UNIDO, FCP, and the WB, launched a competitive grant scheme. The call was for innovative small-scale youth employment projects and supported young people in the transition from being passive recipients to active participants in the creation of employment and the effects this can have on the promotion of peace. Successful applicants were awarded a grant of between USD 5,000 and 20,000 in tandem with the provision of capacity building assistance in order to support project implementation.
