TİKA Supports Youth Employment in Cameroon

Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA) equipped a bakery that provides vocational training to young people in Akonolinga, Cameroon.

The equipment and materials provided as part of the project will increase the capacity of the bakery, which is run by the Dynamic Youth Educational Association in the city of Akonolinga and provides vocational training to homeless and orphaned young people in need.

Aiming to keep orphaned young people in need, some of whom are drug addicts, from bad habits and ensure their integration into the society by helping them enter a profession that will provide regular income, the project doubled the daily production capacity of the bakery and tripled the number of trainees.

A dough kneading machine, a convection oven, and various pieces of equipment and materials used in bread production were provided and delivered to the relevant officials as part of the project.
