ILO/SIYB Global Outreach Study 2003

A study of the outreach and impact of the Start and Improve Your Business Programme worldwide. Commissioned by: SIYB Global Coordinator, International Labour Organisation, Geneva, 2003.

The purpose of the study is to provide insight into the worldwide outreach of the Start and Improve Your Business programme, based on secondary data. The document gives an overview of the outreach of the SIYB programme measured by 6 SIYB project offices that are currently active, serving 21 countries in their respective regions.
Activities involve training of SIYB trainers, Partner Organisations and Master Trainers, development and adaptation of SIYB materials, from 1997 to date. The Master Trainers are the 'heart of the SIYB Programme', and come from for-profit (16%), governmental (33%) and non-governmental (51%) organisations; this study, however, does not disaggregate by type of host organisation.
It compares the results obtained, with those available from programmes such as CEFE, EMPRETEC and MSI.
