The goal of this project is to support rural disadvantaged populations to find decent and inclusive employment options by acquiring the skills and knowledge currently in demand on the local labor market.

For this purpose, the organization will partner with local VET colleges and local businesses.

  • A labor needs assessment study will be conducted among 100 local businesses;
  • Twenty beneficiaries in total will undertake training programs identified based on the needs assessment; and
