UNMISS-supported Vocational Training Centre in Aweil
“The future of youth is very important for us in South Sudan,” said David Shearer, Special Representative of the Secretary-General and head of UNMISS.
On a recent visit to South Sudan’s Northern Bahr El Ghazal region, David Shearer, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and head of the UN Mission in South Sudan visited a vocational training centre in Aweil town, which is equipping the youth in the area with practical skills that will help them earn a living once peace has fully returned to their country.
The centre aims to help train South Sudanese youth in essential skills in computer, tailoring, carpentry, and other trades, to make them both self-reliant and competitive in the job market.
Established with funding from UNDP – the United Nations Development Programme – and the Relief, Reintegration and Protection Section of UNMISS – the UN Misison in South Sudan.
