City of Vienna, HOPE'87
Project Description: 

Thanks to the financing from the City of Vienna, two programmes were implemented that enabled young women with difficult family backgrounds, orphans and daughters of war victims to get involved in the socio-economic life of society and to be integrated in the labour market by improving their skills.

The first project successfully provided 90 female trainees with basic computer skills demanded by the labour market, such as Corel Draw, Adobe Photoshop and Web design.

In the second project, another 90 young women received the opportunity to take special training in video production techniques combined with English language courses, with the aim of finding a job in the advertising and marketing business.
