According to the ILO, the field visit is aimed at reviewing the programme’s achievements and gather beneficiaries’ feedbacks.

At the end of this tour, François Murangira, who was accompanied by officials from the YEP, the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Livestock and the Ministry of Economy, reaffirmed the ILO's commitment to continue providing technical support for the promotion of decent work through youth agropastoral entrepreneurship.
