Where We Work: Côte d'Ivoire

In Côte d’Ivoire, we’ve addressed one of Sub-Saharan Africa’s most pressing needs: helping young people create their own opportunities through entrepreneurship. 

Here, we supported self-employment using our interactive Build Your Business (BYB) curriculum, which empowers young people with the knowledge and connections to start, grow, and lead a small or micro-enterprise. In Cote d’Ivoire, a French-language adaptation of BYB trained local organizations to reach growing numbers of youth and has launched new businesses that are contributing to their local economy.
