2014-2015-ECOWAS SEE PROJECT
The SEE (Sensitize, Educate, Empower) Project was jointly implemented by Africa Youth Growth Foundation (AYGF) and Activating the Lost Dream Foundation (ALDF) and funded by ECOWAS and the Spanish Fund on Migration.
The project sought to combat the ignorance of the ECOWAS Free Movement Protocol as a critical factor reinforcing trafficking in persons (TIP) activities in Idiroko border community through sensitization of community residents especially women and children on the dangers of human trafficking. Appreciating the critical role of women in societal development, the project also empowered a population of women within the community through entrepreneurship and vocational skill acquisition trainings.
The training focused on vocations such tailoring and fashion designing, computer and secretarial service delivery, hair dressing, baking and bead making. Sequel to the training, beneficiaries were guided and empowered (through donation of equipment and award of seed funding) to establish small scale businesses (vocations).
