The MIDA Ghana/Senegal Programme  was promoted by IOM and supported by the Italian Cooperation (Ministry of Foreign Affairs). Its objective was to contribute to the socioeconomic development of Ghana and Senegal, through the identification and transfer of skills, financial, social and professional resources of the expatriates living in Italy and the promotion of partnerships between hosting and origin communities. More specifically, MIDA Ghana/Senegal supported Ghanaian and Senegalese expatriates living in Italy who were interested in promoting the economic and social development of their home country through the promotion of: Entrepreneurial projects that engage migrants’ social networks in hosting and origin communities (co-development perspective); Non-financial services to support the startup of small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) in the country of origin (Business Development Services - BDS) and Innovative mechanisms for remittance transfer and microfinance.
