Contexte

The diaspora organisation NIDOE Swiss has a sincere and intrinsic motivation as well as substantial practical knowledge to contribute to development, but little institutional capacities and experiences. The objective to better enable them to formulate and implement development projects received great attention on both sides in the framework of the Migration Partnership between Nigeria and Switzerland (signed in 2011). This project is based on the strategic priority of the GPMD to engage in migrant’s contribution to development.

Objectifs

  • Create new cooperation mechanisms and strengthen diaspora organisation;
  • Improve the employability and entrepreneurial skills of technical college alumni in Nigeria
  • Groupes cibles

    Nigerian diaspora members in Switzerland, in Europe and in developed countries; Young Nigerians boys and girls living in Nigeria/Lagos.

    Effets à moyen terme

  • NIDOE-Swiss has the organisational and institutional capacities to develop and implement projects and to influence respective policies. The strengthened diaspora organisation is able to contribute to the national and even global debate on the contributions of migrants to development.
  • Input of diaspora members and the private sector results in improved relevance and quality of skills training in partner institutions located in Lagos state, which leads to better employment chances and more self-employment of alumni.
