Faced with the challenge of the pandemic, where technology and the need to deliver services online to people are all the more relevant, UNICEF rolls out a special program for survivors and those at risk of trafficking to help them with the employment or self-employment.  The institutions involved are the Regional Directorate of Public Vocational Training N.1, Tirana; Regional Employment and Skills Agency, Elbasan; Vlora Regional Directorate of Public Vocational Training; Kukës Regional Council; Public Vocational School "Nazmi Rrushiti", Diber and Public Industrial School "Adem Broci" in Shkodra. Each of them received a full set of equipment to operate online and also to teach ICT skills. Dedicated training program and seed funding to help people to be successfully employed or self-employment is run by UNICEF’s partner organization “Key Adviser”.

"Through this programme, our institution has been supported with 5 laptops and a multifunction printer which are very necessary for our work online, which is essential during pandemic " says Marsida Hyseni, Director of the Regional Directorate of Employment and Skills Elbasan.

"It is worth stressing the need for the program and such equipment in this school, because we also have the ICT Department.  Students will be delighted. "says Alma Selami, Director of the Vocational School" Nazmi Rushiti "in Dibra.

Valmira Guzi Executive Director of Key Adviser Albania states that “Cooperation with local public institutions brings value to our work. By consolidating action in collaboration with UNICEF and public organizations, we are developing promissing models to support people in need.”".
