In six years, monies spent to boost youth employment have almost tripled

(Togo First) - From XOF5 billion in 2013-2014, funds spent to boost youth employment by the Togolese government soared to nearly XOF15 billion in 2018. 

Among the various programs to which these funds were allocated is the national volunteer scheme which is steered by the national agency for volunteers (ANVT). Under the latter, 30,000 volunteers were mobilized -30% of whom were women. There were also 16,000 volunteers for citizen engagement (VEC). 

In line with the volunteer scheme, 8,000 youths were recruited. Also, the High-Intensity Labor Project (THIMO) helped create 250,000 jobs for youths and women. Then, there is a project supporting youth employment that was launched in 2017. It generated 125,000 direct and indirect jobs. 

The youths who benefited from training and financing mechanisms initiated by these various initiatives also created a little more than 200,000 jobs, both direct and indirect.
