Title: Additional Broll Ethiopia Youth / Migration
Description:

Each year, rural areas lose a promising share of their workforce, as youth leave their homes and migrate to cities or move abroad in search of a better future. The risks, unknown. The distress induced by poverty and a lack of employment opportunities push many youth around the world to search for jobs elsewhere. By addressing the links between distress migration and rural development, FAO is making a difference in Ethiopia.

Dopesheet:

Each year, rural areas lose a promising share of their workforce, as youth leave their homes and migrate to cities or move abroad in search of a better future. The risks, unknown. The distress induced by poverty and a lack of employment opportunities push many youth around the world to search for jobs elsewhere. By addressing the links between distress migration and rural development, FAO is making a difference in Ethiopia. A project on youth mobility, food security and rural poverty reduction - in collaboration with the government and rural stakeholders - is striving to reduce the number of people migrating from rural areas out of distress.

Total Number of Migrants: 12,115,263

National Youth Out Migration Rate: 15%

With funding from the Italian Development Cooperation, the project was launched in 2015 to 

provide motivated youth in regions of high distress migration with profitable alternatives. The aim is to promote innovative pathways for youth employment and entrepreneurship in rural 

areas -and the impact is already being felt.

Over 350 youth in Ethiopia have now received the necessary training and equipment to launch a local agricultural activity. Animal fattening, sheep and goat rearing, dairy, poultry and egg production, beekeeping, as well as horticulture and fishing, are amongst the initiatives aimed at turning potential migrants into successful entrepreneurs. The pilot initiatives involve 152 youth in 11 groups in the Amhara region and 200 youth in 20 groups in the Oromia region.

FAO also works with the Government to ensure safe mobility, by increasing incentives for regular 

and orderly migration. 

Creating rural employment opportunities is benefitting both participants and their families. 

By promoting agricultural enterprises in migration-prone areas, young entrepreneurs are given the choice to remain in their communities.

From the training I learned how to raise and care for sheep and learned about their gestation period. We sell the sheep selectively and are able to save money in the bank. We gradually improve through this project by saving money.

6. SOT Wondwossen Desalew – Head of Agriculture Office, Kalu District, Amhara Region (Amharic):

This is a good option to prevent youth migration. We will build on what we’ve learned and scale up the project in other areas. We are doing great work that’s motivating youth and community members, inspiring them to work in their area of origin.
