Since 2021, Agility has supported International Rescue Committee (IRC) employment training programs in Cote D’Ivoire. In coordination with Ivorian NGO PRO-Jeunes, IRC provided skills development and training to 545 young people.

In one program, Agility provides classroom space at its Abijan Logistics Park, as well as computers, internet access and funding for free training. The on-site training includes life skills, ICT, entrepreneurial skills and digital marketing. The training program has multiple groups of approximately 20 students each taking classes at the Agility Training Center.

A second program provides agriculture and agribusiness training at a local community farm and includes instruction in traditional farming and fish farming, including how to prepare, build, maintain and manage productive farming operations.

The partnership between PRO-Jeunes, IRC and Agility has proved to be exceptionally effective. Due to its success, in 2023 the Ivorian government also contributed funding and helped to manage these local programs using government facilities, land and resources. IRC and Agility will continue supporting the ICT, life skills and entrepreneurial skills development program, as well as work with the agricultural skills development program in other areas.

From 2021 through 2023, we reached 545+ people.

Since 2018, Agility has supported Oiada International and its employment training programs in Ghana, as well as Oiada’s student outreach programs in Turkey and Brazil.

In Ghana, Agility and Oiada have partnered to provide free training to young people joining the workforce or starting businesses.

Agility has been a long-time supporter of humanitarian logistics and food assistance programs for the UN World Food Programme (WFP) and the UN Global Logistics Cluster during humanitarian crises around the world.

Since 2006, Agility has supported WFP in several ways:

· During humanitarian emergencies, including sudden onset, protracted and complex emergencies, Agility has provided the WFP and the Logistics Cluster with in-kind supply chain services, including warehousing/storage and transportation of humanitarian cargo, as well as in deploying trained supply chain experts that help the Cluster and WFP to plan and execute emergency supply chain operations on the ground.

· Agility also provides assistance for planning and preparedness projects, with local operations teams providing supply chain market and capacities information for geographies that are at risk for humanitarian crises, or that may be used as staging areas for humanitarian responses to crisis impacted areas.

· In addition to supply chain support and assistance, Agility has also frequently raised money for WFP through employee donation campaigns for food assistance to disaster impacted people.

Since 2006, Agility has helped WFP and the Logistics Cluster provide some sort of humanitarian assistance around the world to well over a million people.
