UNICEF launches a new youth leadership program


UNICEF launched last Tuesday the Generation of Innovation Leaders Programme (GIL) at EDEX 2018, BIEL, Beirut. The program is funded by the governments of Germany and the Netherlands and is in partnership with DOT Lebanon, the Nawaya Network, Injaz Lebanon, RDCL, LOST, the Social Movement, Safadi Foundation, UNRWA and Akkar Network for Development. The project, in cooperation with local municipalities, provides the youth with education opportunities and development of their employment skills in the fields of innovation, sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics over all Lebanese territory up to the most marginalized and remote areas. It serves as a tool to address the lack of access to knowledge for economic reasons by young people in these areas and to create job prospects in digital economy, which still is in need of talents that are not restricted to university degrees, according to UNICEF.
