The Board of Directors of the World Bank (WB) has approved a grant of 40 million dollars destined for Mauritania to create employment among young people.
According to the Mauritanian state news agency (AMI), this funding will go to create “decent” jobs for young people, especially women and people from underprivileged sections of the population.
The beneficiaries will be chosen from among young people, between 15 and 24 years old, from various regions of Mauritania and must meet the requirement of not having had the opportunity to complete their studies.
This program, financed by the World Bank, includes guidance for the development of a professional project, acquisition of the necessary knowledge for social integration, professional, technical and industrial training, and the promotion of income-generating micro-projects.
According to the same source, the number of beneficiaries will be 156,000 young people, which means a third of the population in the selected areas
