WASHINGTON, September 8, 2020 — The World Bank approved today a $104 million grant from the International Development Association (IDA) in support of skills development programs for Mozambican youth.

“Empowering its youth by developing higher level skills through quality post-secondary education, while working on policies to incentivize the creation of jobs linked to modern productive systems, are among the most important challenges facing the country if it’s to reap the benefits of its demographic dividend,” noted Idah Z.
