PROJECT YVETA

INTEGRATING FORMAL AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION.

As Africa Leads’ first initiative, Project YVETA is a vocational program that integrates skills training in agriculture and agro-entrepreneurship with traditional academic schooling in the subjects of math, language comprehension, and agricultural sciences.

 

The program targets over 15 villages in the region of Thies,  Senegal where there is a high number of adolescents who currently do not attend school due to a variety of difficult circumstances.

 

 

As its first class, the program welcomed 21

adolescents hailing from 15 villages across the region.

 

The Model

With income generated through our  12 acres farm and our poultry production, we hope to sustain the program’s operations and its 3 main activities of focus:

A quality formal education in the traditional subjects of math, language comprehension and agricultural sciences.
FORMAL EDUCATION
A quality vocational education in agriculture with a more emphatic focus on two aspects: Agriculture and poultry farming.
EDUCATION IN AGRICULTURE
Empowering a new generation of entrepreneurs in the agro-business sector.
EMPOWERMENT
 

CREATING REWARDING FUTURES

The program complements Senegal’s national development strategies

by responding to skill gaps in the economy, particularly in technical and vocational fields.

 

The goals of our program are aligned with the current efforts of the Senegalese government to reduce the rural-urban migration of youth and to cultivate their interest in agriculture by showing them how diverse and rewarding working within this particular sector can be.
