The partnership will provide capacity training for UNDP Syria's local partners to increase the efficiency of knowledge transfer, capacity development, as well as reach and benefit vulnerable populations. These objectives will be achieved through tailored training modules for target groups and beneficiaries on funzi.mobi. The implementation of the project has started.

Entrepreneurship is for everyone: moving towards inclusive entrepreneurship - New blog post!

"Entrepreneurship is about the journey, and not the destination. It’s about doing and building things, not only about the result. Therefore for me, inclusive entrepreneurship is first and foremost fighting for the rights of all people to become active members of society to be able to realize their dreams. We need to proactively build the world we want - not building the future based on what has been done in the past."
