Ethical Fashion Initiative - Job creation and development of micro enterprises through fair trade and selected value chains

The main objective of this project is to contribute to reducing poverty and consequently to the settlement of populations and reduction of irregular migrations (especially to Europe).

The project aims to:

  1. Develop economic opportunities and the creation of jobs in the artisanal sector for micro-entrepreneurs from the informal sector, with a focus on women and youth, through the promotion of exports;
  2. Enable regional and international migrants to return by developing professional training opportunities with certified qualifications in view of immediate employability.
