The project improved the skills of the country's economically active labour force segment but also the capacity of unemployed and out-of-school youth and adults seeking enhanced livelihoods through better skills development. This, in turn, contributed to a reduction in overall unemployment and provided the region with a more skilled and productive Labor force in support of the government's economic transition efforts.
