In 2018, with support from European Union, UNDP Libya had an agreement with Toyota Libya to provide young people with a three-month vocational training in maintenance and repair of cars (Vehicles) including computer skills, English language and writing reports.
This program called (Discover Your Talent) Toyota Libya has been implementing it since 2012 as a part of its social responsibility in Libya.
The UNDP has supported the initiative in 2018 as a project of “enhance the local abilities for Resilience and Recovery” sponsored by European Union and which was implemented in coordination with the Ministry of Local Government and several municipalities from eastern, western and southern of Libya.
In 2018, through this collaboration, 20 young people from several cities developed their abilities by training them at Toyota Libya. With the extension of this partnership, another 40 young people will acquire skills that will improve their chances of finding decent jobs to secure a decent life for themselves and their families.
On October 6, 2019, as a first batch, 20 trainees including IDPs from all over Libya, began their training at Toyota Libya Training Centre in Misrata, as for second batch 20 trainees will begin in next January.
