Ghana: Launch of the Call for Proposals for SIFA Funding Window I
The Skills Initiative for Africa (SIFA) is an initiative of the African Union Commission (AUC) supported by the German Government to strengthen occupational prospects of young people in Africa.
Under the SIFA, a Financing Facility for Skills Development has been established. The Facility is implemented by the African Union Development Agency (AUDA/NEPAD) with financing from Germany through KfW. The Financing Facility for Skills Development is designed to coherently address the common challenges in skills development by upscaling and/or disseminating local best practices and supporting innovative and sustainable approaches and thereby foster the employment and entrepreneurship of youth, women and vulnerable groups including refugees, migrants and internally displaced persons, the disadvantaged and disabled.
The Financing Facility for Skills Development provides funding on a competitive basis for the implementation of innovative and sustainable skills development initiatives. It is for initiatives, which directly engage the private sector, address market needs, and can have a regional impact. Initiatives must align with national strategies with the perspective of improving quality-based employment-oriented skills development.
