The training efforts aim to equip 180,000 Ukrainians with skills for reconstruction


A group of international partners, including Germany, announced the launch of a workforce training program for Ukraine aimed at preparing young people with skills to help rebuild the country.

The initiative plans to train 180,000 people in skills needed for Ukraine’s reconstruction, according to German Development Minister Svenja Schulze, who announced the initiative on Tuesday at an international conference on Ukrainian recovery in Berlin.

Germany will be joined in this effort by a number of other countries and international organizations and business groups, which will be supported by €700 million in funding, Schulze said.

“In this way we provide Ukraine with important support in times of war and during reconstruction. “No matter how many times Russia destroys power lines, hospitals or buildings, Ukrainians will have the knowledge and skills to rebuild them,” Schulze said on Tuesday. .

The program is expected to last three years and will primarily target youth, internally displaced persons and women.
