MINAS - NEF
Promoting the participation of vulnerable groups in the national development process
As part of the fight against social maladjustment and juvenile delinquency, the Ministry of Social Affairs (MINAS) and the National Employment Fund (NEF) signed a partnership agreement on 4 August 2006 relating to the implementation of the Programme of Support for the Social and Professional Integration and Reintegration of Vulnerable Persons (PAIRPPEV).
The PAIRPPEV concerns vulnerable, able-bodied people of professional age. It is jointly initiated and implemented by MINAS and NEF within the framework of the provisions of Fundamental Law No. 96-6 of 18 January 1996 revising the Constitution of 2 June 1972, Law No. 83/013 of 21 July 1983 on the protection of persons with disabilities, Law No. 2010/002 of 13 April 2010 on the protection and promotion of persons with disabilities, and finally, the missions assigned to this ministerial department by Decree No. 2005/160 of 25 May 2005 on the organisation of the Ministry of Social Affairs.
As a reminder, the NEF's main mission is to promote employment, as set out in Decree No. 90/805/PR of 27 April 1990 establishing this body.
The PAIRPPEV programme aims to enable the professional integration of vulnerable populations through vocational training (learn by doing and formal) in various professions and the promotion of income-generating self-employment and microenterprise projects.
The PAIRPPEV thus promotes the empowerment of these people, taking into consideration the fact that they too often encounter relatively greater difficulties in gaining free access to employment.
