IOM has concluded a ten-month life skills training for 206 displaced young people in Baidoa, South Central Somalia. The project, which was implemented in collaboration with the Rural Education and Agriculture Development Organization (READO), started on 1 July 2014 and was funded by the Common Humanitarian Fund.
Participants, who included young women and men, were selected from internally displaced families and the host community, and were trained in carpentry, masonry, business entrepreneurship, tie-and-dye, tailoring and traditional weaving skills.
A graduation ceremony which marked the end of the training was attended by Ministers from the Interim South West Administration (ISWA), internally displaced persons’ (IDP) camp leaders, civil society and other groups.
