Name of the project: Protecting the interests of Ukraine’s internally displaced persons (foremost women’s) and expanding their prospects on the labour market

Beginning of the project: 01.07.2016
End of the project: 31.07.2017

Project description
The project aims to help Ukraine’s internally displaced persons to become integrated into civil society and to enlarge their (principally women’s) opportunities on the labour market. NGOs, whose sustainability and support are an essential feature of this project, will be involved in the implementation of the project in the areas of largest concentration of displaced persons. Leaders, instructors and experts of NGOs in these areas will learn more about small business, micro credits, career counseling, mentoring, and e-solutions. Internally displaced persons will acquire new competences in order to participate in the labour market. The NGOs will compile together with the monitoring group the plan for implementation of activities that will continue after the conclusion of the project.
