1.    Background

1. Introduction

Save the Children International (SCI) is a non-governmental organization whose mission is to fight for children’s rights and deliver immediate and lasting improvement to children’s lives worldwide. SCI has been operational in Greater Somalia for over 40 years. Current programs straddle relief and development in various sectors including, Health, Nutrition, Child Protection, Child Rights Governance, Vocational and Skills Training, Education and Food Security & Livelihoods (FSL) working in Somaliland, Puntland, and Central South Somalia to help communities cope with drought, conflict, displacement, and flooding.

Somalia has one of the largest proportional youth populations in the world. The current estimation shows 73 percent of the Somali population is aged under 30. Within this group, internally displaced youth and young returning refugees and girls are among the most marginalized, and at-risk groups. Young people from the poorest and most deprived families, especially girls and IDP in Somalia, find it challenging to transition to working as they lack the required life skills. Without work, girls are more at risk of poverty, early pregnancy, early marriage, inability to access health care, and unable to invest in their own families, among other factors preventing the realization of their rights.

SOM – Economic And Social Empowerment of Youth in Somalia (EASE-Y); Is a three years project funded by BMZ – Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development aiming at the Economic and Social Empowerment of Youth (EASEY) in Somalia. The project will support the economic empowerment of several young people not in employment, education, or training (NEET) who live in Mogadishu, Garowe, and Baidoa towns. Employers greatly value life skills, becoming even more critical with the rapidly changing nature of work to help address the unique challenges facing vulnerable youth from IDP and host communities in the target locations by targeting those youth most in need of assistance designed to 1) build skills in technical and vocational education and training that are more resilient to climate change, 2) pro-vide linkages and engagement with the private sector that result in income-generating opportunities including wage and self-employment; and, 3) engage youth in building transferrable life skills to help them succeed in their new environment, contributing to both social and economic empowerment with target 50% young women, and 15% youth with disabilities among its beneficiaries.
