4 This valuable financial boost to the project will support the provision of equipment and the construction of youth-friendly spaces throughout Somalia.

5 These spaces provide opportunities for youth to engage in peacebuilding, skills development, income generation, entrepreneurship, sports and culture.

6 Niyi Ojuolape, UNFPA Somalia Country Representative, welcomed the new funding: “This new funding demonstrates not only the confidence of the Dutch government and indeed the EU in the capacities of Somali youth, but also also the impact and success of project activities, thus far.

7 We are committed to ensuring that young Somali people, especially girls, have safe spaces to develop their full potential as productive and independent agents of positive change.” In August 2020, the EU provided €6 million for the Dalbile Youth Initiative, which is expected to last 3.5 years.

8 Since its launch, the project has transformed the lives of 5,000 young people through bootcamps; entrepreneurship, social enterprises and financial education/management training; mentoring programs; future-ready skills and start-up grants.

9 The project also launched youth friendly spaces in Mogadishu, Hargeisa, Bossaso and Buhodle.

10 These serve as co-working spaces and provide incubation, research, and acceleration services for startups.

11 Dalbile Youth Initiative partners with the Federal Government of Somalia and the Federal Member States.

12 In this project, the EU and the Netherlands are working together to jointly support sustainable recovery and the achievement of the SDGs in Somalia.
