Apply For Youth Invocation Workshop Fair in Benin


Phelps Stokes and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), in collaboration with the Government of Benin, Activos Culturales Afro (ACUA), Palmares Fundaçao, and The Songhai Center, kindly invite you to apply for a spot in the Global Youth Innovation Workshop-Fair, which will be held from 10-13 October 2011, in Cotonou, Benin. This event seeks to bring together youth entrepreneurs engaged in different sectors from across the world to learn and share their experiences among youth participants who have the desire to expand their entrepreneurial, agricultural, technological and cultural knowledge.
This event is part of the Global Youth Innovation Network (GYIN) initiative. GYIN aims to contribute to the reduction of poverty among poor rural youth in Africa and the Americas through exposure to opportunities and business prospects, innovation and knowledge on replicable youth-successful models in small scale agri-business to enable them to create and engage in sustainable small scale agri-businesses.

If selected, as a distinguished youth participant, you would benefit from networking with fellow youth, have the opportunity to expand your business network, learn about other youths’ experiences and successes, and interact with many delegates including policy and decision-makers as well as development partners.
Being our primary target, the organizers will be responsible for financing your full participation in this workshop including the cost of your air ticket, accommodation and feeding from 10-13 October.
We hope that you will apply by 3 August 2011 at 10pm GMT so that we can get necessary logistics arranged on time.
We are looking forward to your application and counting on you to make this event a great success.
