Elevate lives campaign to employ 10,000 unemployed youth
After graduation, many young people see their aspirations and dreams dampened by the daunting realities of poverty and rampant unemployment that plague numerous socio-economically disadvantaged regions worldwide. This pressing situation forces many of them to rely heavily on humanitarian aid for basic needs. Some are pushed into low-wage jobs that barely cover essentials, while others are driven to dangerous illegal migration, often risking their lives on vessels ominously known as 'boats of death', all in the hope of securing a better future for themselves and their families.
We at Gazze Destek Organization have launched a transformative initiative to uplift and empower unemployed youth, steering them toward a brighter, sustainable future. This initiative centers around creating business incubators, anticipated to employ ten thousand youth in the upcoming four years. These incubators, tailored to address the diverse needs of the labor market, span multiple sectors.
These incubators include:
