ReelSkills for Agribusiness

The ReelSkills for Agribusiness (R4A) is a training and job-matching project focused on equipping youth with real skills to succeed in careers in the Agri-processing sector in Nigeria. We will train 1000 youths (60% women) and match at least 800 of these to worthwhile jobs. Our target beneficiaries are 18 – 35 year olds with minimal work experience.

The 3-year project is funded by the Netherlands Government under the Challenge Fund for Youth Employment (CFYE) programme.
