Shaqo Platform trains Somali youth, tests their new skills and connects them to jobs so they can thrive!

Shaqo Platform

A young and jobless generation!

 

Somalis under 30 constitute around 70% of the population, and the youth unemployment rate is among the highest in the world. 

 

Extreme youth unemployment leads to challenges such as chronic poverty, despondency, mental illness, crime, drug abuse, susceptibility to extremist groups and ultimately dangerous migration.

 

This deeply affects the youth, their local communities and the whole society. 

 

Shaqo Platform is here to change all this.
