11 August 2014
Across the African continent, more than 15 million young people are unemployed. Most of those who are working earn less than two US dollars a day. The ILO’s Youth to Youth Fund (Y2Y Fund) is a competitive grant scheme, which enables youth-led non-profit organizations to pilot and replicate innovative projects that create employment for young people by helping them set up micro-enterprises in niche markets.
