Employment Generation for Early Recovery

  • Employment Generation for Early Recovery 
  • The EGER project addresses the urgent need for income generation and job creation in Somalia through community based approaches. It aims to provide more knowledge to local communities towards contributing to peace building, reconciliation and socio-economic development in Somalia. The project seeks to generate employment opportunities and income for vulnerable populations in Somalia, particularly women, marginalized groups and youth. This is implemented through labor intensive rehabilitation of productive and basic social infrastructure such as irrigation canals, garbage collection, environmental health, access roads, market places, and public buildings.
    In addition, the project is enhancing vocational training for youth and other vulnerable population and influencing the micro-finance services targeting women headed households with the aim of addressing the need for longer term job creation and skills development.
