Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a service enterprise for development cooperation with international operations and global experience. Owned by the Federal Republic of Germany, the organisation operates as an enterprise with a development-policy mandate: to make sustainable improvements to the living conditions of people in partner countries. The organisation’s business area GIZ International Services (GIZ InS) is the vehicle for offering results-oriented services on the international market using multiple donor funds.
GIZ International Services has been commissioned by the European Union for a project in support of the Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs, Martyrs and Disabled (MoLSAMD) of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. The overall objective of the project is for Afghans to receive better skills through non-formal vocational training and have a better labour market access and improved job opportunities as an alternative to irregular migration.
The Technical Assistance team will work with MoLSAMD to improve its institutional capacities to steer the non-formal VT sector, improve the quality of market relevant non-formal skills provision on the local level and to improve MoLSAMD’s capacities to manage legal migration.
