Thirteen youth from five communities in Honiara has been equipped with skills to find the right job, thanks to a World Vision Economic Development project.
The Honiara Youth Development Employment and Small Enterprise Project (HYDESEP), supported by the Australian Government, aims to empower 700 unemployed youth and early-school leavers to start a small business or find employment and secure internships.
A participant in the training, Redley Guralaua says besides learning applications, CV writing and interview preparation, they learnt labour law, workplace law, work ethics, decision-makings and more.
Youth who participated in similar training has secured employment in companies and organisations around the country.
Others, who completed Life Skills training as part of the project, have started small businesses.
