The Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF), member of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) Group, has recently approved a USD 800,000 grant for a project that seeks to increase the employability and improve the income of 1,800 rural youth in Nicaragua. 

The project will be carried out by Fabretto, the only NGO authorized by the Ministry of Education to offer the alternative rural high school program proposed by this project, which mixes models for formal and vocational training that allow rural youth to improve their access and links to high-value supply chains and markets. The project will focus on youth living in three zones of Nicaragua: the Southern Caribbean Coast Autonomous Region (RACCS), Madriz, and Nueva Segovia.
