Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, February 11, 2021 – The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has teamed up with Mastercard Foundation and Schneider Electric to launch a $1.4 million public-private partnership, including $500,000 in USAID funding, to boost employment opportunities in the energy sector for 750 young women in Côte d’Ivoire. The International Rescue Committee (IRC) will implement the project, Projet de Renforcement des Opportunités pour les Jeunes (PRO-Jeunes) Vocational Training for Women in Energy, which represents a significant expansion of existing IRC programming to generate youth employment. The project is funded under the U.S. government’s Women’s Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP) Initiative.
