Skills training for self employment STEC

There are two established training centres in Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) focusing on skills development of young people in order to create self-employment opportunities. The local partner NGO TOYMU is running these training centres with financial and technical support from HOPE’87. Previously, no such residential and non-residential skills training centres existed in the very remote areas of Chittagong Hill Tracts. Therefore, many young people, particularly girls and adolescents, remained unskilled, neglected, deprived and thus marginalised.
