In Togo, more than 1,000 young people will benefit from agribusiness support in Kpalimé, thanks to the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the SEA Foundation, from the football star, Sheyi Emmanuel Adebayor. The two parties formalized an agreement to this effect on Wednesday in Lomé.
Indeed, last April, following a meeting with the UNDP representative in Togo, the former Arsenal striker announced some upcoming projects.
Concretely, it is an intensive training and integration program, which will be implemented with the assistance of the National Institute of Agricultural Training (INFA) of Tové, for the benefit of young Togolese.
The training will be spread over 45 days and will combine theory and practice.
For the former captain of the Sparrowhawks, who “counts on the determination of young people to undertake locally and succeed”, “agriculture remains a great challenge for Africa”.
The resident representative of UNDP, Aliou Dia, for his part welcomed an “agreement which is part of the implementation of axis 2 of the Togo 2025 government roadmap”.
As a reminder, the foundation created by Emmanuel Adebayor operates in several areas.
A year ago, the 2008 African Ballon d’Or signed a memorandum of understanding with the Togolese Revenue Office to promote tax compliance in Togo.
