Gapi and Partners Promote Youth Training for Aquaculture Commercialisation

Within the scope of the project to promote aquaculture commercialisation and training activities in business development, the financial institution Gapi, in partnership with Chicoa Fish Farm, established ten fish commercialisation units in Niassa province, where 40 young people from Lichinga, Mandimba and Cuamba districts were integrated.

According to a statement, in this pilot phase 138 applications were submitted, of which 87 were from men (63 percent) and 51 from women (37 percent), and 40 were selected – 21 men (52 percent) and 19 women (48 percent).

The activity is part of the “Projecta Joven” initiative, created by the International Labour Organisation (ILO), in partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MADER), with funding from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).

According to the note, the project’s priority is to create more and better employment opportunities for young people in vulnerable situations in Cabo Delgado, Niassa and Nampula provinces, through the development of technical and vocational skills, with a focus on agribusiness development and investments in infrastructure.

“We held training sessions based on the entrepreneurship module, and among several contents covered were topics such as marketing, people management, legal responsibility of the company, costing and pricing, financial planning and management, and initial capital and customer management,” explained Rui Amaral, director of the Training and Business Consultancy Area at Gapi.

The responsible also added that, in the context, lecture sessions given by technicians from the District Services of Economic Activities were also held.

“In order to reach a greater number of beneficiaries, direct dissemination sessions of the activity were held with educational institutions and youth associations, in the main markets and on community radio stations,” he concluded.
