Empower Youth for Work
Young people living in rural areas often lack opportunities to develop themselves. Schools and universities are often far away.
These regions are affected by climate change, which makes traditional agricultural life more difficult. There is very little and poor quality education available and hardly any jobs.
This is why many young people are moving away from the rural to large cities. However, because these cities are growing extremely rapidly, young people cannot always find work there either.
Empower Youth for Work is a five year project which focuses on giving young people in rural areas of Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Ethiopia opportunities to develop themselves. This project will involve young people in order to tackle the main problems in their region, draw up recommendations and lobby for policy changes. We will work together with young people to help them develop professional skills and meaningful social networks.
This project will involve young people in order to tackle the main problems in their region, draw up recommendations and lobby for policy changes. We will help young people to develop professional skills and meaningful social networks. This will improve their chances of finding work. Jobs and opportunities for entrepreneurs that are suitable for young people will be created. We will make sure that young people are more involved in making policy decisions. They must be given the opportunity to be innovative and to be heard. Training courses will be given to young people who are working on their family’s farm to teach them how best to deal with the effects climate change.
Within the next 5 years, we want to successfully reach and really help 184 964 young people in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Ethiopia.
