The International Organization for Migration (IOM), the UN Agency for Migration, has been established in 1951 and is committed to the principle that humane and orderly migration benefits both migrants and society.
In the framework of the Entrepreneurship by Diaspora for Development (ED4D) Programme, IOM now invites Institutions/ Companies/ NGOs /Universities to submit their offer for the organization of entrepreneurial training sessions.
The overall objective of the ED4D program is to encourage the Ghanaian and Ethiopian diasporas residing in the Netherlands, or Dutch entrepreneurs in partnership with the diaspora, to engage as entrepreneurs for the development of the private sector in Ghana and Ethiopia. More specifically 20 entrepreneurs from the Ghanaian diaspora and 20 entrepreneurs from the Ethiopian diaspora, or Dutch entrepreneurs in connection with the diaspora, will be offered assistance in their journey to start up or expand businesses back home.
20 selected aspiring entrepreneurs per country will have the opportunity to enrol in entrepreneurial training sessions. In order to use existing expertise and not to create new entrepreneurial modules, IOM would like to outsource the actual training to institutions/companies/NGOs/Universities who have a proven track-record in providing such trainings.
