Thank you SIDA from UNICEF and young people of Kosovo
Internship opportunities for young people
Thanks to SIDA’s support, UNICEF Kosovo has been able, as a first office in the region, to launch and establish a Generation Unlimited internship programme that in its initial face benefited 500 young people in getting internship opportunities in 57 private and public
The catalytic role of this funding in establishing the GenU as a new programme, its success and potential for scaling-up has been recognized by institutions, UN Agencies, private sector partners and UNICEF regionally and globally.
The partnership between UNICEF and Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) it was instrumental to identify and bring together 500 young people (48% of them girls) and connect them with private sector, institutions, civil society organizations to join hands in recovery efforts of society against COVID-19.
UNICEF would like to take this opportunity to express its deepest gratitude to the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) for the critical, and strategic partnership to empower and allow young people in Kosovo to increase their capacities and abilities to participate in the workforce through the establishment of Kosovo Generation Unlimited (K-GenU) Internship Programme.
The results presented in this THANK YOU note would not have been possible without the support of SIDA. The aim was to create the largest young people’s movement to support the professional readiness of young people and recovery efforts of private sector enterprises, central and local level institutions in Kosovo.
