Job Creation for Youth

The government of Somaliland recognizes the importance of youth and exploits the potential of youth in the development and security of the nation as well as in the wider Horn of Africa region:

In pursuit of realizing this objective my administration:

  1. Launched a comprehensive job creation program for young Somalilanders through the ‘National Employment Program’. To date 1,349 young people, both boys and girls have graduated from the Program. All the beneficiaries have undergone a 3 months training that includes life skills and are now active in various government agencies, some of whom have joined the Somaliland National Army.
  2. In 2020 The National Employment Program will recruit 1,000 new youth this year.
