Reference projects

Sustainable agriculture
Beninclusif: dynamic markets for agricultural products
The main goal of the project is to improve living conditions for farmer families through sustainable market support services. The project’s inclusive systems approach focuses on two sectors within the poorly developed agricultural market. During the first phase (2021-2024), the focus will be on fish farming and citrus tree farming, both sectors having high economic potential.

Labour market insertion
Coaching for employment and entrepreneurship 
Job placement for disadvantaged youth
The project aims to provide young women from vulnerable backgrounds in Morocco with opportunities for productive self-employment, so they become empowered to create resilient livelihoods for themselves.
