The African Development Bank, donor of the Youth Entrepreneurship and Employment Programme by the National Youth Commission in February held a Mid Term Review of the Project in Freetown. The week-long event by the mission examined progress on the implementation and conducted a field visit to partner institutions including: Government Technical Institute (GTI), Milton Margai College of Education and Technology (MMCET), implementing partners of the skills component of the project in western area.
Senior Fragility and Resilience Officer of the AfDBAlex Yeaneysaid, they were impressed ‘with the impact of the project in those institutions.’ He said the pilot project if implemented well would create room for scaling up.
The Commissioner of NAYCOM NgoloKatta said the outcome of the MTR is a demonstration of the hard work of the Commission and he assured all of a smooth conclusion of the project by December 2020 ‘the Commission will continue its drive to empower and support young people to make them employable.’
Dora Zainab Kamara a student of MMCET said they were happy for the project, but noted that such trainings require more hands-on than theory. She said although the Commission will be providing tools to their institutions that will not be enough for the number of students in the institution.

 

NAYCOM signs deal with CSE to train 1,540 youth in roads construction skills

With a population of about 80% below 35 years in Sierra Leone, the challenges of unemployment remains huge. As a way of mitigating these high figures among youth, the National Youth Commission has signed a ‘Service Contract’ with the CSE construction company at their Zimmi camp. The contract includes the training of 1,540 youth in road construction skills along the Bandajuma- Liberia Border Roads Project funded by EU through the National Authorizing Office (NAO).
Youth in five chiefdoms (Sowa- Bandajuma, Peje-Futta, Barri-Potoru, Makpele-Zimmi and Soro Gbema- Fairo) will be recruited and trained in auto mechanic, survey, soil laboratory, social work, fitting, steel bending, environment and other related skills.
The two year project will provide employable skills to youth, so they can contribute to the economic transformation of the country through decent jobs and increased productivity.
