EU supports ECOWAS development blueprint

As part of its Vision 2020 development blueprint, ECOWAS (Economic Community of West African States) has launched a volunteer programme whereby young specialists will be deployed to serve in member countries. The programme, which is being supported by the African Development Bank (AfDB), the United Nations Volunteer Programme (UNV), Unesco, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and the European Union (EU), will seek to strengthen peace-building, improve national reconstruction and accelerate development in member states.
In late April, pioneer volunteers commenced a due training in the Liberian capital, Monrovia, to prepare them for the maiden deployment. They comprise young specialists in different fields and will be deployed across West Africa, as part of the pilot project.
They will be deployed in community-based associations, non-governmental organisations and agencies that are active in socio-economic, cultural, political and humanitarian work.
