This project is part of CIDA's International Youth Internship Program (IYIP), funded by the Government of Canada's Youth Employment Strategy (YES). The IYIP contributes to the YES by providing a large spectrum of Canadian graduates with valuable international development work experience abroad.

Expected results 

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: i) increased awareness to female and male Canadian youth of the equal possibility of working internationally; ii) enhanced equal employability of female and male IYIP interns in Canada and in the field of international development; iii) improved capacity of female and male IYIP interns to contribute to international development in a gender sensitive way.

Results achieved 

Results achieved at the end of the project (March 2014) include: The interns assisted the local partners by: 1) leading a project in Senegal on the onion transformation through a drying process thus allowing a comparative analysis with currently used transformation processes and propose new conservation methods; and 2) in Gabon, by providing local organisations with teaching material for training in the areas of medical biology, special needs education and early childhood education. The interns acquired new skills and abilities that will increase their employability such as: the interns’ contribution on Monitoring and Evaluation has enhanced their capacity to adapt and implement M&E systems in their projects through the incorporation of up-to-date techniques and methodologies.
