The project therefore aims to improve the competitiveness of the local construction sector in terms of quality and productivity in order to provide construction workers with more stable employment conditions, and thus improve their income situation. The increased competitiveness will be achieved through certified training measures to develop the professional skills of young workers with little education. This is done in close collaboration with the private sector in order to create long-term employment opportunities.
The employability of unemployed young people without education will be increased by providing them with basic skills required by employers. «Skills to build» thus contributes to reduce the existing skills gap in the construction sector and the poor quality of popular construction. The project activities will initially be carried out in the City and Province of Maputo with the possibility of expansion into other regions.
