Our aim is to create more training projects to help the youth get employed.

We need to constantly focus on youth issues, listen to their voices, encourage their development and support their entrepreneurship, fostering an aspirant, determined, respectable and intelligent young generation. In this way, we can guarantee the smooth implementation of the UN Millennium Goals and the achievement of the sustainable development of humanity.
