Initiative aims to generate 6,000 youth jobs in Tunisia

A youth employment project launched on Wednesday by the United Nations and its partners aims to create more than 6,000 jobs for young people in Tunisia over the next five years.

It’s the second phase of an initiative which has already generated more than 1,250 jobs, including over 160 business start-ups, in four governorates of the country.

It will now be expanded to 14 vulnerable governorates, with US$14 million being invested in training courses, business coaching and technical assistance for aspiring and existing entrepreneurs.

The programme is a partnership between the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the US Agency for International Development (USAID), the Italian Development Cooperation and the Hewlett Packard Foundation.
