    Awareness Seminar on ‘Decent Work for Youth Using ICT’ Project to Hold

    Date published: 3 October 2017
    The Awareness Seminar on the “Decent Work for Youth Using ICT” Project will be held on October 3, at Rowad El Khair Association premises, in Qalyubia, Egypt. The Seminar is within the activities undertaken by the Project which is implemented by the ICT for Comprehensive Community Development Project (ICT4CCD), launched by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

    The Seminar aims mainly at selecting the first group of trainers and beneficiaries of the Project, as well as giving a presentation on the significance of increasing decent job opportunities for graduates of technical and vocational education through cooperation with the institutions concerned with the labor market. It also aims at discussing how to match young people skills with labor market needs and reduce the unemployment rate through motivating young people and providing them with training opportunities to find appropriate jobs.

    The Project is launched in partnership with the Participatory Development Program in Urban Areas, affiliated to the German Cooperation, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), and within the framework of the common understanding and the EU-German development cooperation agreement. It is implemented in the governorate of Qalyubia, particularly in Shubra El-Kheima, Khosoos and Qalyoub.

    The project aims to overcome the main challenges of social and economic development in Egypt, the most prominent of which are the increasing unemployment rates among youth and the lack of professional and soft skills. The project seeks to develop and enhance the special professional abilities in the IT-related business areas, contributing to creating more appropriate employment opportunities and improving their standards of living. The project will provide young people with training on computer skills, other professional business skills, management skills— such as secretariat and warehouse management— in addition to work ethics.
