Bioforce Africa: graduation for Bénédicte Schutz grant holders

As part of the support provided to the Bioforce Training Centre Africa, the Monegasque Cooperation was delighted to see the Bénédicte Schutz grant holders graduate at the beginning of July.


In an effort to localise aid and to train African employees in humanitarian aid and development assistance management, the Monaco Government’s Office of International Cooperation has been supporting the running of the Bioforce Training Centre Africa, located in Dakar (Senegal) since it was first set up in 2017.

This initiative helps to strengthen the local expertise of initiators of change and to create local jobs in the humanitarian and development sectors. The Training Centre in Dakar has already trained over 1,700 individuals in various areas such as logistics, nutrition, child welfare, water/sanitation, humanitarian action…

In addition to this, the Monegasque Cooperation awards grants to certain young learners, with priority given to women, refugees, and those with a low income. There were 20 grants awarded this year, distributed as follows: 6 grants for training in “human resources and finance”, 4 grants in “human resources and finance manager”, 4 grants in the module training course (refugee status), 3 grants in “logistics manager humanitarian action”, 2 grants in “water and sanitation manager” and 1 grant “manager for child welfare in an emergency situation”.

The Monegasque Cooperation would like to extend hearty congratulations to the holders of the Bénédicte Schutz Grant for having obtained their diploma and wishes them a long and successful career in the humanitarian and development sectors.
