ARCHIPELAGO is a 4-year European programme, funded by the European Union in the framework of the EU Emergency Trust Fund (EUTF) for Africa. Its main objectives are to improve the employability of young people through targeted technical and vocational education and training (TVET) measures. It also aims to support the growth of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs).
The programme supports partnership projects in 12 countries in the Sahel and Lake Chad region: Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria and Senegal.
Following the first call for proposals (which was launched in April 2019), a second call for proposals has been launched with the aim of supporting partnership projects to be implemented in the 12 target countries.
Each selected project will receive a grant of between €400,000 and €500,000. Each grant may cover 100% of the total eligible costs of the project.
In order to be considered eligible, each project proposal must be submitted by a consortium consisting of at least two partners – including an organisation based in one of the above-listed African countries and another organisation based in a Member State of the European Union.
Applications may be submitted by business support organisations (such as chambers and business associations), training centres and/or other entities which specialize in activities related to vocational training and/or business development services.
