Emergency Income Support and Training Project
The Emergency Income Support and Training Project provides unemployed and underemployed workers the opportunity to partake in six-month training and certification programs in the hospitality and construction sectors.
The project also aims to strengthen the institutional capacity of the Ministry of Public Health, Social Development and Labor (VSA) by means of a Social Registry System. The development of an integrated social registry system will improve the capacity of the Ministry of VSA to coordinate social programs, target beneficiaries and respond to disasters and other shocks.
