Expend to other sectors
Under the YEP Tailor-made banner we also already offer training and coaching to 3 Young Experts, which was started last year at embassies in Benin, Kenya and Rwanda, through the AgriProFocus Talent Pool. The Talent Pool can accommodate three professionals per year for a period of four years.
I can also see another expansion towards other sectors and ministries. For example, there is an interest from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to assign young professionals through YEP Programmes on the theme "Sexual Reproductive Health and Human Rights". And who knows what else may be lined up. During the above-mentioned meeting I talked to a talent developer at Bouwend Nederland (Building Netherlands), who wondered whether YEP Programmes could also be implemented on the Dutch market. We will soon be discussing this in detail.
We are obviously are also busy with our regular programmes. We received in total 45 proposals from companies and organisations for the new batch, already the sixteenth. And it seems that we will also be continuing over the next five years.
