The multisectoral targeted technical assistance and capacity building project in the area of gender in Madagascar and the Comoros (PMATG-COI) aims to support the economic and social empowerment of women and young people and to strengthen the advocacy capacities of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs). The project will be implemented through the umbrella organization “Entreprendre au feminine dans l'Océan Indien (EFOI)”, for the benefit of its member associations but also for targets in the areas covered. The PMATG-COI has three main components, namely: (i) support for entrepreneurship; (ii) reduction and elimination of violence against women and young people; and (iii) capacity building for rural women and young people in sustainable development and food security. The project thus supported the finalization and validation of the EFOI network's biennial Action Plan. The major product expected will be the preparation, with a view to its adoption, of the framework law for equality between men and women in the Comoros and Madagascar. This project is funded to the tune of 958,870 USD by the African Development Fund (ADF).
The objective of the PMATG-COI is to contribute to the mitigation of situations of fragility in IOC member countries, particularly in Comoros and Madagascar, through the promotion of inclusive and accelerated economic growth in the sub-region, focusing on the empowerment of women and youth and the advocacy capacities of civil society organizations (CSOs).
The main beneficiaries of the project are: the populations, in particular women and young people of the member countries of the Indian Ocean Commission (IOC), the governments of Madagascar and Comoros, the organization “Entreprendre au Féminin dans l'Océan Indien (EFOI)”.
