During the ceremony, the Director of Swisscontact, Régula-Chávez Malgiaritta emphasized the importance of continuing their studies through skills-based training "now you leave with knowledge of what to do, but it is important that you continue studying to gain more knowledge.
The courses with a duration of 6 to 8 weeks allow young people to have more practical training, and at the end of the course a certificate with a set of skills they have acquired during the training that guarantees entry into the labor market.
