Speaking in Mansakonko, national coordinator for the Cory project, Mamadou Edrisa Njie, said Cory seeks to enable young rural women and men to create sustainable and non-farm businesses by building their entrepreneurial capacities. 

He added: “This week’s training will implement the second phase of the Cory project where 10 facilitators representing our national implementing partners, will go through the entrepreneurship module of the Revcel training through the Columbia Business School’s Venture for All Program. 

“The objective of this component is to promote the interest of the poor rural young men and women in the principles and ideas around the character, psychological and attitudinal demands of entrepreneurship.”

The Coordinator for Cory-Cameroon, Darline Symphonie Ntankeu Yepmou, in her brief statement informed the meeting that the project is being implemented in four African countries – Benin, Cameroon, Nigeria and Gambia. 

She said “This is a good opportunity for us. We are here to facilitate the training and hope that we will work together by the year 2017 everything should end with good result.”
