A good way to fight poverty

Initiated by the Government, the grassroots support program aims to reduce poverty by supporting grassroots communities, and the promotion of youth employment.

It was officially launched last Friday in Kara (Northern Togo) by the representative of the Head of State, Victoire Dogbe-Tomegah (photo), Grassroots Development minister, Christian Adovelande, President of the West African Development Bank, and Kardiato Lo N’diaye, the head of UNDP in Togo.

With a budget of FCFA7,1 Billions, including 6 billions provided by the West African Development Bank, the program will oversee 500 groups of economic interest for about 5 years. It will facilitate the access to microcredit by installing 200 multifunctional platforms, and by creating 4000 micro and small businesses, and numerous jobs for youth, with and without degrees.

The program is one of the initiatives included in the Accelerated Growth and Employment Promotion Strategy.

Togo is one of the first countries in the region to implement a dynamic policy for the grassroots development.
