Still Achieving Even at the near end of 2011
This year Egypt ICT-TF has made another breakthrough through ICT/4SMEs project. It was selected to be among the winning organizations chosen to join the Taqeem Fund for Evaluation in Youth Employment and to attend the Evaluation Clinic in Geneva. This initiative is organized by the Youth Employment Network (YEN).
Actually, the Youth Employment Network (YEN) is a partnership of United Nations, International Labour Organization, and World Bank.
YEN was created in 2001 to mobilize action on the commitment of the Millennium Summit for decent and productive work for young people. YEN is a global platform to prioritize youth employment on the development agendas and to exchange on policies and programs to improve employment opportunities for youth. The Network includes development agencies, governments, the private sector, youth groups and other NGOs.
This year, YEN has embarked on implementing a project called “ Taqeem’s Community Of Practice” in which winners receive cash and in-kind grants to assist them in improving their organization's monitoring and evaluation system. These in-kind grants come in the form of an Evaluation Clinic.
From 11-14 October at the International Labour Organization in Geneva, Switzerland, the Youth Employment Network will host an Evaluation Clinic. The Clinic will introduce participants to the Taqeem Fund and teach them the best practices in monitoring and evaluation.
