To train young African professionals in research and technology transfer,
transforming the minds of young people for positive change.

T he Brazil Africa Institute (IBRAF), as a facilitator of the rapprochement between Brazil and the African continent - focusing its actions on promoting economic and social development and combating poverty - develops a technical training ecosystem with various programs aimed at different profiles of people.

One of our main initiatives is the Youth Technical Training Program (YTTP) aimed at training young Africans. The YTTP uses methodology and materials focused on professional development to meet the diverse needs of African countries through knowledge, skills and technologies in which Brazil is a world reference.

The program takes place over 14 days, offering a face-to-face immersion in Brazil with a focus on the areas of agriculture and rural development, health, information technology, infrastructure, and the creative industry.
