Youth Employment for Food Security Improvement in Northern Benin (EJASA).
EJASA is an innovative project that offers sustainable jobs to 3,400 young people, of which at least half are women. The project creates opportunities in agriculture and improves food security in the regions of Alibori and Atacora in Benin. Our focus is on horticulture, soybean production, and raising small animals such as chickens, rabbits, and goats. Special attention is given to the transformation of food produce to increase value and shelf life.
Project duration: October 2020 to December 2022
Objective: Increased income for young people, especially women who work in agriculture by improving productivity and adding value through transformation
