Title: Training in entrepreneurship and business-based skills can improve employment opportunities in sub-Saharan Africa
Author: Mercer, D.G.; Remillard, P.A.; Goodman, P.A.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: An assessment of education and training needs in Morogoro, Tanzania identified several agriculture and small business skills that would improve the employment opportunities of program graduates. Offering short courses, on-site training, and child care can encourage youth, women, and the already employed (including farmers) to upgrade their skills.
