Asylum and Job Information Campaign

Asylum and Job Information Campaign is a major component of OSAA-01 Project “Promotion of Employment Services and Asylum and Job Information Campaign” funded by Help International NGO.

This campaign that lasts 3-half days started in August, 2016 and will continue until November this year. 750 beneficiaries, particularly young able Afghans – potential asylum seekers, including males and females with different ages and backgrounds benefit from the campaign. In addition, 200 out 750 beasyc1ns will be introduced to several employers, free training-courses and internship programs or will be assisted to form or upgrade working-groups in the fields that have skills.

The content of the program includes a PPT on accurate information, risks and few chances of asylum, new asylum-seeking rules and regulations in European countries and existing employment and education chances in Afghanistan.  To further enrich the program, some guest-speakers who were in Europe are invited to share their experiences, real stories and lessons learnt to the bens. At the end, the bens have a field trip to Ansari Vocational Training Center to see vocational classes and get an idea of a marketable skill other than high school and university.

Results:

Since 25 July 2016, twelve rounds of the program have been implemented and around 640 bens benefited from this program. The 12 most successful cases/initiative groups were identified, introduced to different employers i.e. I/NGOs and bazaar or were assisted through provision of support-kits to restart their enterprise.
