Job Placements & Business Start-Up grants


The unemployment rate for youth in Somalia is one of the highest rates in the world; women lose out even more.

We aim to change lives by developing skills at an individual, enterprise and community level throughout Somalia. Our technical and vocational skills training programs focus on addressing the scarce and critical skills shortage throughout the country.

We foster job creation by means of facilitating apprenticeships; co-operative learning opportunities and skills advancement work placements post graduation from ELMAN training institutes.

Our model is centered on Training And Placing (TAP) our graduates; through partnerships we facilitate for them with private sector co-operations as well as the Federal Government public contracts; our success rate remains unmatched in salary based job placements.

Our graduates receive a trade specific toolkit on successful completion of the course and each year we increase the number of business/cooperative/enterprise start up grants we award graduates who demonstrate sound business plans.
