Detailed description of project Back

The general objective of the project is to contribute to improving the conditions and the living environment of the populations of the Ménaka region.

The objective of the first phase is to quickly and concretely implement actions in favour of the population of the Ménaka region through the realization / rehabilitation of small infrastructures whether they are commercial or related to sanitation and priority needs in the city of Ménaka, favouring labour-intensive work (HIMO) to immediately revive economic activity covering the entire region.

One of the challenges of this phase will also be to support training / insertion actions for young people and women by setting up mechanisms enabling them to identify, design and implement an economic project by developing their technical and entrepreneurial skills through quality and adapted training actions, while supporting them in launching their economic project through access to a support fund.

Finally, it will be necessary to carry out feasibility studies in order to widen the scope of the project to other parts of the region taking into account both the specificities and the local economy. On the basis of these studies and the results of the seed phase, a new larger project (2nd phase of the project) will be prepared.

Thus, the first phase will be structured around three components:

  • Component 1: Realisation of small infrastructures;
  • Component 2: Vocational training and youth integration;
  • Component 3: Conduct feasibility studies for phase 2 of the project.
