The ceremony will be graced by the presence of many partners of the program, including the UNCTAD (United Nations Conference on Trade And Development) as well as the concerned Government Ministries (Secondary Education, Higher Education, Employment and Vocational Training, Youth and Civic Education).
Initiated by the Small and Medium Sized Enterprises Promotion Agency to act as an effective response to the problem of unemployment which affects particularly the youth [more than half of the national population], the program for the promotion of entrepreneurial spirit among youths intends to:
- Inculcate in every youth, irrespective of the level of education, but also in those who drop out from a classic educational background, a decent alternative to the vision of the world which is being presented to them today
- Permit to every youth to have a clear choice between the desire to become employed and the ambition to be an employer;
- Make youths to no longer be job seekers, but creators of growth and employment.
Immediately after the official launching ceremony of the program, a session of training of trainers will take place until Wednesday the 18th of May ,at the National Higher Polytechnique in Yaoundé
