    MAFITA

    MAFITA is a 6-year DFID-funded programme working in Nigeria's northern states, with a vision to empower marginalised youths and women through provision of increased economic opportunities and social inclusion. MAFITA is currently recruiting.

    Northern Nigeria has high-youth unemployment, insecurity and limited economic opportunities. This reality can lead to extremism and instability. Marginalised groups, such as adolescent women and the Almajirai are particularly hard-hit.

    MAFITA aims to lead 68,000 marginalised young people - with a particular emphasis on adolescent girls and Almajirai - to gainful employment. By 2021, the program will create a net total of 43,300 full-time equivalent jobs and assisting 23,500 micro and small enterprises (MSEs). The project will tackle the supply and demand side of the labour market, focussing on the delivery of skills essential for employment, as well as the absorptive capacity of the labour market.

    MAFITA will partner with public and private stakeholders to improve access to relevant and quality training, mentorship, work experience, business development, and financial services for marginalised youths and women. The programme will also support local market systems to enable the absorption of MAFITA's target beneficiaries into sustainable income-generating activities.
