Skills Training and Income Generation for Urban Afghan Refugees

Overview

HF received funds from US State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, for implementation of a project titled ‘Skill Training and Income Generation for Urban Afghan Refugees’ in Rawalpindi/Islamabad. The project aimed to provide appropriate vocational skills training to unemployed Afghan refugees, men and women living in Pakistan and to identify and create job linkages in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The achievements of the project led to subsequent four years of funding with geographical expansion to Peshawar and Attock in 2013 and 2014. The fourth phase successfully concluded in October 2014. The key interventions includes community mobilization, training, certification, On-job training and placement of trainees with employers.
