ilo1Under the Project “Strengthening the Resilience of Syrian Women and Girls and Host Communities” implemented by a partnership of ILO, SGDD-ASAM and led by UNWomen, vocational and technical training courses on basic life skills and labour market skills started as of 25.06.2018 at SADA Women Development and Solidarity Centre.

The morning and afternoon training sessions started with a total of 270 trainees with 190 Syrians, 45 Turkish citizens, 3 Iraqis, 3 Iranians and 5 T.R. citizens of Syrian origin.

The courses provided at the Centre include Turkish language teaching at A1, A2 and B1 levels, packaging, computer operation, basic makeup and makeup techniques.

The Centre also features a children’s space for the children aged 4 to 7 of the trainees during training time. A total of 57 children participate in the educational and social activities in the children’s space where they acquire creative skills as well as get socialised.

Trainers monitor trainee development at individual and class level, and plan the training to contribute to their development. Trainees are highly motivated for the training; they feel safe both for themselves and their children who are both educated for skills and socialised.
