YEP period 2017 - 2019, batch 12
As a Young Expert, I am working for SNV Ethiopia’s project, Gender and Youth Empowerment in Horticulture Markets (GYEM) as a project officer. GYEM is a project funded by Comic Relief and being implemented by SNV Ethiopia in the country’s two regions, Oromia and Southern Nations Nationalities and People’s Region. The overall objective of the project is to enhance women’s and youth’s social and economic empowerment through improved access to and control over assets and benefits in the horticulture value chain. The project partners with farmer’s cooperative unions to increase the income of coops with a focus on women. We actively promote household dialogues that keep self-initiated changes at heart to improve the situation of women in the horticulture value chains and support and facilitate employment and income generating activities for youth. Please, find some success stories in the project’s website above.
