Tony Elumelu Foundation and United Nations Development Programme will empower 100,000 additional entrepreneurs in seven Sahel African countries over in the next 10 years.
According to a statement made available to our correspondent by TEF, applications are open for entrepreneurs from eight African countries.
“We are pleased to announce the partnership between the Tony Elumelu Foundation and UNDP to empower 100,000 additional entrepreneurs in seven Sahel African countries over a 10-year period. This is in addition to the 10,000 African entrepreneurs that the Foundation is already committed to,” the statement read in part.
“Starting this July, applications open for African entrepreneurs residing in the following countries: Nigeria (Northern), Niger, Chad, Cameroun, Mauritania, Mali and Burkina Faso.”
TEF, with this partnership, lifts thousands of African entrepreneurs who have not been selected for its TEF Entrepreneurship Programme.
“With more partners on the way, we hope to do much more – we are unleashing the potential of the African continent.”
