The Government has launched a programme to enhance Gabon's human resources and a reform in the sector of education, training and research providing. The Vocational Training and Integration Support (AFIP) project is funded by the 10th EDF and is part of a “job pool” and “Public-Private-Partnership (PPP)” approach with the aim to strengthen the capacity of training centres, enhance competition and performance and develop training offers especially for vulnerable youth. AFIP aims at strategically promoting youth employment focusing on the implementation of an integrated system based on market logic with the overall objective of contributing to the fight against poverty and social stability through the development, strengthening and adaptation of the short and qualifying training offers.
