With support from the European Union, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) reached an agreement with Toyota Libya F.Z.C to provide young people with three-month vocational training on car maintenance and repairing, computer skills and English among other disciplines. Yesterday 20 trainees, including internal displaced persons (IDPs), from all across Libya started their classes at Toyota Libya F.Z.C Headquarter in Misrata.
The initiative aims at helping the country to cope with the rising unemployment among recent graduates, promote decent jobs and boost opportunities for youth in Libya.
This activity is framed within Discover Your Talent, a programme that Toyota Libya has been implementing since 2012 as part of its corporate social responsibility component for Libya. UNDP supported the initiative in 2018, under the EU-funded ‘Strengthening Local Capacities for Resilience and Recovery’ project implemented in coordination with the Ministry of Local Governance and several Municipalities from East, West and South of Libya.
