Technology for Youth and Jobs is the Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Technology’s Project, funded by the World Bank.
Technology for Youth and Jobs Project will work with enterprises to encourage the investment in shared technological resources and human capital development focusing on women and youth, thus addressing impediments in the supply of high-quality IT services with an ultimate goal of improving the sector to become more competitive and resilient.
Targeting both firms and individuals, the project provides seed grants to stimulate private investments in the sector, including in research and development. Private sector actors will have the opportunity to invest in new IT firms, training, or human resources services.
