Evaluator concludes: SNV’s youth employment approach works.

Youth unemployment in many parts of Africa is soaring, and especially out of school youth in rural areas are a vulnerable group. SNV’s Opportunities for Youth Employment (OYE) project realized employment for almost 16,000 young people, using a so called push-match-pull approach. Sixteen thousand young people, and every one of them stands for a person who started up their life and gained purpose. A final report by an independent evaluator has now confirmed that push-, match pull works. But, what is it? And why does it work?

Hi everyone, I'm really glad and also excited for joining this network. I'm Dharma, and currently as CEO Vestifarm. We're helping farmers to get capital from investors in the city through a digital platform. We're now one of the most-hyped agriculture investment platform with thousands of investors looking for agriculture project that can be invested every month. I'm hoping to collaborate with anyone of you who are willing to foster agriculture sector in Indonesia. Nice to see you all

Dharma Anjarrahman Thanks for the warm welcoming Janine Schoeman & Maula Paramitha Wulandaru :) I'm very interested with your platform, because i believe it is very improtant to keep the agriculture ecosystem being connected to each other. I still learn myself to use your platform. Does Agri Pro Focus have some community empowerment programs specifically to farmers? We are very happy and open for farmers if they need some funding to scale-up their project. And are you open for some coffee meeting? just for keeping in touch. Thanks in advance :)
