Outreach Training Officer

Rwanga Foundation



Rwanga Foundation will continue to foster the skills and capacities of employees working in the private sector. This implication is a part of the previous project implemented in KRI funded by GIZ. Rwanga Foundation has set a plan to continue enhancing skills development of both employees’ capacity to work and their opportunities at work. This approach will offer more scope for creativity and satisfaction at work.

The project is designed based on the previous project to support the private sector employees in boosting their workplace performance. This project seeks youth empowerment in the three targeted governorates; (Erbil, Sulaimani, and Duhok) to enhance employee employability and productive engagement. These kinds of training and development are considered as an essential element of strategy. Most employers have realized that providing technical support and development to the employees serves as employee motivation, but it also enables the companies/ organization to create a highly-skilled workforce.  Moreover, it is a unique opportunity for employers, mainly in the private sector, to develop the capacity of their employees by the provision of different employment skills which the companies required. Therefore, employers usually emphasize seeking the right skills and competencies for their companies. These are abroad competencies and behaviors that are essential for a prosperous working place. These are the critical employability skills and the core skills that will make the employees more effective. These skills are sometimes known as transferable skills because they develop over time and take them with the employers as their careers develop.

The project’s overall objective is to improve young people’s employability skills in the private sector by empowering 300 youths with training courses and advisory services, focusing on female and male youth aged 18-35. In addition, this project aims to improve the skills and capabilities of 300 employees in various areas per employee needs, for instance, HR and recruiting management, Financial management, Skill training where employees will gain the knowledge and abilities necessary to fulfill the specific requirements for their job positions in three Kurdistan region governorates (Erbil, Sulaimani, and Duhok).
