Private Sector Development: This project is to create opportunities for youths, particularly returnees and vulnerable youths, to access and be competitive in the job market. Particularly after the protests across Iraq, youth unemployment rates became one of the main issues of concern across NGOs, the Government, and the International community. The primary and main objective of the Youth Training Center is to enable a total number of 1100 of beneficiaries, selected among the Baghdad Governorate according to specific criteria (further discussed below), to access the job market and/or establish their own small income generating activities. Concerning the expected results, according to MH previous experience and results, beneficiaries will have access to such opportunities in the 3 months following the courses and the access to the additional supports (toolkits, internships lasting 3 months each, and small loans provided by Mercy Hands for Humanitarian Aid).  The primary sub-objective of the Youth Training Center is also to allow youths from the Baghdad Governorate to access a safe learning space where to develop skills for future jobs and enhance their competitiveness in the job market. The highlights of the learning process will be Educational, Vocational, and Emerging Markets sessions to make them as competitive as possible in the job market.
