Guinée: Programme d'appui à l'integration socio-economique des jeunes (INTEGRA)
The Support Program for the Socio-Economic Integration of Youth (INTEGRA) programme centers around the development of technical and professional skills for Guinea’s youth and industries. Its beneficiaries include individuals, enterprises, and institutions across the country, both in the private and public sectors.
A joint initiative of the Government of Guinea and the European Union (EU), INTEGRA is part of the Valletta Trust Fund to reduce irregular migration to Europe. As such, INTEGRA will contribute to the prevention and limitation of irregular migration by supporting the socio-professional integration of young Guineans and the reintegration of returning migrants.
Sustainable Development Goals
Forging the technical and professional skills of young Guineans
ITC’s Support Programme for the Socio-Economic Integration of Youth (INTEGRA) aims to prevent and limit irregular migration by providing young Guineans and returning migrants with essential job skills.
We do this through a range of trainings in youth entrepreneurship, agribusiness, food quality and safety, market profiling, and tech skills. Our approach is learning-by-doing and includes practical sessions for trainees.
We also provide financial management consultants to work with our young entrepreneurs, micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and cooperatives to help improve their credit profile, provide advice on business plans, and identify sources of financing .
Our financial advisors have supported more than 900 aspiring entrepreneurs and 40 MSMEs and cooperatives.
We also work with Guinea’s industries to help them better serve the country’s private sector.
