JOIN PROJECT GEO Green entrepreneurship Opportunities

Event posted by in AgriProFocus Burundi
  09 June 2016 to 18 July 2016 - All Day Event

 Project GEO is a scope-driven product initiated to solve an identified gap in Africa.

This becomes necessary so as to ensure that Africa’s growth strategy is well-blended with youth empowerment and skills acquisitions for career advancement and job opportunities in the green economy sector, and the opportunities it presents i.e. green technology, green business practices and environmental protection.
