    We help to promote projects that improve employability in developing countries, giving people more and better opportunities through a range of actions:

    • Via a network of organisations working together to develop prototypes in the field to test their viability and thereby identify the most efficient job-creating initiatives.

    • Promoting innovation in products, services and/or processes.

    • Generating a new collaborative culture between organisations working in the same region in order to boost their impact and create sustainable actions.

    • Incorporating new measures to constantly monitor and assess initiatives, adapting the programme in real time to the particular needs of each location. This monitoring of initiatives provides more insight into the communities and assesses the impact of each action focused on improving employability.
