In the context of the activities of the SDG-Fund, a joint fund of the United Nations System for inclusion and empowerment of families and youths, the Entrepreneurship Department started in Ponta-Figo, district of Lembá, the first Family Budget, Savings and Dissemination of the Social Entrepreneurship primer for about 300 families and youths distributed over 13 localities of the country.

This program is the result of a United Nations Fund, made available to countries in the context of the #ODS for the implementation of a catalytic program focused on Social Protection. At a global level, 24 countries were selected and Sao Tome & Principe came in 2nd place in the presentation of proposals.

Budgeted at U$D 2 million the Joint Programme was implemented under the leadership of the Ministry of Labour, Solidarity, Family and Vocational Training in close collaboration with the Office of the Resident Coordinator and three other Ministries (of Health, Youth, Sports and Entrepreneurship and the Ministry of Education) and four other UN Agencies (UNDP, UNICEF, WHO and ILO).

The programme aims to support the Government in implementing the Social Register, the parental education programme, Youth engagement through social entrepreneurship and access to Health and nutrition with monitoring and case management through DHIS2.

The implementation of this activity in the districts identified (Mé-zochi, Água Grande and Lembá), arises from the need to promote financial inclusion and awaken in young people the interest in planning to save and invest, empowering and equipping them with tools that enable them to create their own businesses.
