Since 2014, MEDA has partnered with Dalhousie University, McGill University, and Jimma University of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine (JUCAVM) to implement the Agricultural Transformation through Stronger Vocational Education (ATTSVE) project, funded by Global Affairs Canada.
The ATTSVE project aimed to increase the number of men and women graduates from ATVET Institutions in the Nejo, Woreta, Wolaita Soddo, and Maichew regions of Ethiopia with the skills and knowledge needed to work in the commercial agriculture sector of Ethiopia.
The ATTSVE project partnered with ATVETS from the Nejo, Woreta, Wolaita Soddo, and Maichew regions. MEDA was the project lead for business, entrepreneurship, and value chain development focused on strengthening the educational and economic capacities of the targeted ATVETs through the following interventions:
Overall, MEDA supported four ATVETs to start 8 on-campus businesses, 272 students to establish 62 start-up businesses, and supported 2,580 students to participate in cooperative work placements. Read more about the ATTSVE project here.
