2,000 sugar workers lose their jobs
Catalisa, an initiative of the Mozambique LNG Project, Anadarko-led Project, trained recently in the District of Palma 100 young people in entrepreneurship and in matters that allow them to be better prepared for the job market. It is expected that 200 more young people will benefit from the same training by the end of this year and that, during the 5 years of the Catalisa Project, about 1000 young people will be trained.
The trainings, implemented by TechnoServe, lasts 3 months and covers subjects such as business plan development, information and communication technologies, and Basic English language skills. After the training, the youngsters receive follow-up for 9 months to finalize their business plans or to search for work. The top 10 in each course receive personalised guidance and funding to develop their business plan.
At the ceremony of graduation, Valente Jorge, representative of the Government of the District of Palma, said: “We want to support to the graduates. Palma is today very different from Palma of tomorrow. Several companies will be here in Palma and we will have to respond to the needs of human resources for the development of our district”.
Sheila Comé, Coordinator for Anadarko’s Social Investment Area, said: “We want to provide young people with skills and tools so they can improve their access to future employment opportunities arising from Anadarko’s liquefied natural gas project and its partners or other projects. This training also gives young people the tools to create their self-employment”. She added that in the construction phase, Anadarko and its partners plan to create 5000 jobs for Mozambicans.
For Henriques Duarte, recently graduated, “This course has brought many changes. I did not know how to present myself in an interview, and I know now. My dream is to be an entrepreneur. Since here, in training, I acquired many skills in how to be an entrepreneur; I will put into practice what I have learned and apply in the job market. For those who have not yet competed in the training program, I invite them to join because nothing is paid here and the trainers are spectacular.”
