The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Tony Elumelu Foundation (TEF) have launched a youth entrepreneurship programme for the Sahel region of Africa. The TEF-UNDP Sahel Youth Entrepreneurship programme will train, mentor and financially support 100,000 young entrepreneurs in Africa in 10 years . The goal is to contribute to the overall target to generate at least 10million new jobs and $10 billion in new annual revenues across Africa.
This is in addition to the 10,000 African entrepreneurs that the Foundation is already committed to.
Starting this July, applications open for African entrepreneurs residing in the following countries: Nigeria (Northern), Niger, Chad, Cameroun, Mauritania, Mali and Burkina Faso.
With this partnership, the Tony Elumelu Foundation gives hope to the thousands of African entrepreneurs who have not been selected for its TEF Entrepreneurship Programme. With more partners on the way, we hope to do much more – we are unleashing the potential of the African continent!
