The Skills Initiative for Africa (SIFA) Financing Cooperation (FC) is a pan-African initiative established in 2016 by the African Union Commission (AUC) and co-funded by the German Government and the European Union (EU), with support from national governments in eight SIFA partner countries: Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Togo, and Tunisia. SIFA’s overarching goal is to improve the occupational opportunities of African youth. During its pilot period (2016-2025), the Programme sponsors skill development projects that are projected to contribute to the development of employment-oriented skills for young people in African nations.

SIFA is an African Union Commission (AUC) program backed by the German government to improve the employment chances of African youth. SIFA funds skill development programmes in a number of African countries. Projects should help young people build skills that will help them find work.
