Présentation
This project aims to enhance the employability of youth – local, refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) – by introducing entrepreneurship training and business support. By addressing and realizing the potential of young people, this strategy positively contributes to the development of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI), as well as equips refugees and IDPs with relevant skills for their future return. At industrial, trade and agricultural secondary schools, the project provides soft and life skills training coupled with upgraded competency-based technical training, including the promotion of agro-food processing activities. In addition, the project arranges apprenticeships and on-the-job training with prospective employers, as well as improved technical training and business support in the service industry, which provides 77.3% of employment in KRI. This multifaceted intervention program aims to enhance youth employability of refugees, IDPs and host communities
