UNICEF supports vocational training for youth in Syria
Over 3,200 adolescents and youth benefitted of the programme with generous contribution by Germany
Over seven years of conflict and displacement have taken a severe toll on families across Syria.
Inflation, combined with loss of livelihoods and depletion of financial resources have made youth especially vulnerable, with many forced to work to support their families.
To help youth in the city of Qamishly in northeastern Syria reach their full potential and increase their employability, UNICEF supports a vocational training programme, including sewing and embroidery, hair dressing, nursing, computer literacy, Photoshop, and English language courses. With thanks to a generous contribution by Germany, over 3,200 adolescents and youth aged 15 to 24 have benefitted of the programme over the past year.
