The Skills Initiative for Africa Financial Cooperation is an African Union Commission intervention implemented by the African Union Development Agency with financing from Germany and the European Union through KfW Development Bank. The Programme provides grants for selected innovative projects that will contribute to higher productivity, employability, and job promotion for African youth. The EU SIFA Innovation Funding Window III (FW3) is designed to support innovative skills development approaches in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), which showcase new or improved ways of making skills more accessible, relevant, and recognised for employability. Emphasis is on products, services, and processes that will contribute to employment-oriented skills development for young people in Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Togo, and Tunisia.
IFRA-Nairobi invites applications for fieldwork grants aimed to support Masters, PhD and postdoc students who conduct research in the social sciences and humanities in East African (Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda, and Eastern Congo).
