Project Description
The development objective of Youth Employment and Social Support Project for Nigeria is to increase access of the poor to youth employment opportunities, social services, and strengthened safety net systems in participating states. The proposed additional credit of 100 million US dollars would help finance the costs associated with modified and new activities arising from scaling up and restructuring of the current operation in the North East of Nigeria (Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Taraba, Bauchi, and Gombe States) with the aim of providing assistance to poor and vulnerable households - including internally displaced persons (IDPs), i.e. those able to return or resettle to safe environments - and host communities, for increased consumption and improved livelihoods and human capital. In addition to restoring livelihoods, the Additional Financing (AF) will also be used to provide trauma and psychosocial support to conflict-affected and returnee households, internally displaced groups, and individuals, as a form of social assistance intervention. The psychosocial support will be provided in addition with other AF operations at different levels. The closing date of the project is extended to June 30, 2020.
