"The targeted youth come from very poor families, obliged to drop out from school and engage in black market work or worse, in illicit activities. In the view of the fast economic and social change of Albanian society, this youth is often object of discrimination in the labor market, forgotten and left to deal with many difficulties at a very young age. Especially young women are forced to marry young, and in worst cases divorced with children and without any financial support. They need opportunities to gain confidence in themselves, gain some basic work skills, some are innovative and need skills in enterpreneurship and start ups."
The aim of the projects is create opportunities for employment/self-employment of marginalised youth. The objectives include capacity building in work skills of marginalised youth, capacity building in creating start ups of marginalized youth, creating models of employment of marginalised youth in local businesses, creating a network of collaboration with local stakeholders to support marginalised youth employment and self-employment.
