Many young people in Nigeria have the same sobering experience: they finish school, sometimes even have a university degree, and cannot find a job. Some leave the country in search of better opportunities. This is where the training in baking and confectionery that the German-Nigerian Centre for Jobs, Migration and Reintegration (NGC) facilitates comes in.
It is aimed in particular at young women in search of career prospects. They receive professional training at the "Amena Entrepreneurial Academy" in Benin City. They also receive support to start their own business after graduation. Here, three graduates talk about the training and their plans.
