Pemba, Mozambique - November 20th - December 4th
Maputo, December 4th – UNIDO ITPO Italy carried out ad hoc workshops at different levels of depth on entrepreneurship and business planning to over 100 young people in Mozambique, namely in Pemba and Maputo. The seminars were considered very inspiring by the local beneficiaries and facilitated an open discussion with the participants on how to structure their business ideas.
The mission in the African country was held within the framework of the PARTICIDADE initiative, an ambitious project leaded by Fondazione E35 and Comune di Reggio Emilia and financed by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS), that involves local authorities, NGOs and United Nations agencies.
In addition, the mission was the occasion to participate as a speaker at the “Fiera Provincial de Oportunidades de Emprego e Emprendedorismo Inclusivo” in Pemba, an event organized under the patronage of the Mozambican Ministry of Labour and Employment and attended by more than 200 students, enterprises and local institutions. The aim was to take stock of the situation on new business models and on the need to make the labor market more inclusive in a Province, like that of Cabo Delgado, invested by huge business opportunities but also by enormous social and environmental challenges.
