MDPD have partnered with African Technology City, and they have agreed to train 200 youth in vocational and local economy skills. These skills include carpentry, construction, automotive repair, electricity, and agricultural and livestock production.
The most devastated population affected by the war in Darfur is undoubtedly the youth of region. Since the outbreak of conflict in 2003, almost an entire generation has gone without any sort of formal education or training. Hundreds of thousands of youth living in displaced persons’ camps have no way of supporting themselves and are unemployed. This key demographic group needs to be supported through training workshops that will help them sustain their livelihoods.
