Project Summary
The Opportunities for Youth Employment (OYE) Programme focuses on creating in agribusiness, sustainable energy and WASH. The OYE approach had its first implementation in Mozambique, Rwanda and Tanzania in partnership with Mastercard Foundation since 2013 and has provided (self-)employment for an estimated 25,000 young people (with 40% young women) between 2013-2019. OYE is currently being implemented in a number of other countries, including Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mali, Niger and Ethiopia. OYE uses a market-based approach which requires a combination of youth competencies with a business orientation; emphasis on youth economic empowerment and entrepreneurship that involves much more than vocational training.
OYE has been operating in Tanzania since 2013 over several phases and is shortly expected to start a new phase funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Corporation (SDC). This next phase, working initially in Singida and Morogoro Regions aims sustainably to improve youth livelihoods by skills and capacity development and subsequently link these youth to market opportunities for employment and enterprise development in growth sectors that have concrete potential for youth – notably agriculture and renewable energy.
The next phase of this project aims to achieve access to direct employment and business opportunities in agriculture and renewable energy sectors targeting at least 4,500 direct beneficiaries in the Central and Northern Regions of Tanzania.

SNV has worked in Tanzania since the 1971 and currently has offices in Dar es Salaam, Mwanza, Arusha, Dodoma, Mbeya, and Kigoma. In alignment with our Corporate Strategy, SNV Tanzania focuses on three sectors namely Agriculture, Renewable Energy, and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH).

Overview of the Project:
SNV signed a contract with the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DGIS) to implement a 5-year project, branded as Climate Resilient Agribusiness for Tomorrow (CRAFT), in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. SNV, in collaboration with the other consortium partners (Wageningen University & Research, CGIAR’s Climate Change, Agriculture & Food Security programme-CCAFS, Agriterra and Rabo Partnerships), as well as supply chain partners in several targeted agricultural value chains will promote climate smart agriculture (CSA) as a way to transform and reorient agricultural systems to the new realities of climate change.
The project will apply an inclusive business development approach for CSA, focusing on arable farming systems in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. CRAFT project aims for improved food security by working towards climate resilient farming systems which increase productivity under changing climatic circumstances, while reducing food waste and losses throughout the supply chain.
The project will deliver sustainable impact in the following areas:
  • Productive capacity and income increased for 300,000 smallholder farmers;
  • Business performance improved for 50 agribusiness SMEs and 30 cooperatives for climate-proof value chains;
  • Climate resilient sustainable food production practiced on 600,000 hectares

MODE OF APPLICATION: APPLY ONLINE
The implementation strategy of the CRAFT project is based on complementary interventions at three levels: (a) farming systems, (b) inclusive value chains, and (c) the enabling environment. Technical assistance and interventions meant to target project stakeholders (farmers, SMEs, cooperatives, private sector, financial institutions, government agencies, etc.) at these different levels will be done through five different work streams that will guide the implementation process to achieve the expected results at output, outcome and impact level. These work streams include:

  • CSA practices and technologies for resilient farming systems and SMEs
  • Climate smart investment in inclusive value chains
  • Enabling environment for development and scaling of CSA
  • Learning and knowledge sharing (cross-cutting)
  • Gender and youth inclusion (cross-cutting)

The cross-cutting work stream for gender and youth inclusion will emphasise targeted interventions where needed to ensure equity and inclusion through gender sensitive service provision, promotion of household/group dialogues on gender labour division and income-related decision making, as well as targeted support to women- and youth-led companies and leadership.
