The U-Learn II project is a five-year project (2016-2021) implemented in Tanzania and Uganda in partnership with Mastercard Foundation. It continues the previous five-year initiative «Learn, Earn and Save».
The objective is to raise 15000 young people in Uganda and Tanzania out of poverty, sustainably, by increasing their competitiveness in the job market and improving their opportunities for self-employment by demonstrating the value proposition of engaging the young women and men in business models across agribusiness, hospitality and tourism, and building and construction market systems.
The following publications focus on the youth engagement in peer-to-peer learning and developing new «Shared Value Partnership Models» in the construction sector.
