Ukraine’s ministry for occupied territories and German Association for International Cooperation, (GIZ) are launching a program to help Donbas fugitives switch careers and improve professional training in line with the market demands, the ministry says Sept. 20.
The project has three options:
- short term (two weeks) training courses,
- long-term courses for persons having profession but unable to find a job,
- innovation course combining the efforts of the state, local governments, entrepreneurs and public to resolve employment of the fugitives.
The 4-year project is funded by the German government and will be implemented in oblasts Kharkiv, Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhya and Poltava.
Residents of Russia-occupied parts of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts will also be invited to participate, GIZ project manager for Ukraine Benjamin Klinge said.
