This project was designed to respond to the desperate pleas of youth and caregivers echoed during the community reflections.        Majority of the households could not afford the basic needs of their children and youth. JIACOFE therefore identified and provided out of school youth 15-24 years with training in vocation, entrepreneurship and life skills, Micro-enterprise development and small-scale business skills.
