Launched in 2015, USAID’s Building the Potential of Youth Activity (POTENTIAL) is implemented by Save the Children and its partners: Education Development Center inc. (EDC), Facilitators for Change (FC), HUNDEE-Oromo Grassroots Development Initiative (HUNDEE), Professional Alliance for Development in Ethiopia (PADet) and Relief Society of Tigray (REST).
The goal of the program is to assist unemployed and underemployed youth ages 15-29 to attain skills, knowledge, and social capital that lead to increased income and economic self-sufficiency, with a particular focus on girls and young women. By the end of 2019, the activity will have built the economic self-sufficiency of 34,537 youth across 30 woredas of Afar, Amhara, Oromia, SNNPR, Somali and Tigrai regions of Ethiopia.
