Graduation of Entrepreneurship Development Graduate Trainees at Koya University


Headway is a UNDP/UN-Habitat joint action programme, intervening in countries affected by the impact of the Syria crisis (Lebanon and Iraq) and funded by the “EU Regional Trust Fund in response to the Syrian crisis, the EU MADAD Fund”. Rwanga Foundation in consortium with Erbil Governorate will implement it under the umbrella of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

The main goal is to improve the resilience of the host and refugee population in targeted communities impacted by the Syrian crisis, through strengthened local/regional multi-level governance systems, and improved access to basic services, affordable housing, and income, while complementing existing initiatives and supporting national governments to address those risks and vulnerabilities, where a UN joint partnership brings a strong added value.

The programme activities support basic services, livelihoods, and income generation in targeted communities, including the implementation of this project: Entrepreneurship Development Programme, supporting youth and women, which will be implemented by Rwanga Foundation in consortium with Career Development Directorate (CDD) at Koya University.

The project targeted 60 unemployed Host Community, Syrian Refugees, and IDP (Age: 18-35) in Koya District. It comprises of five stages. The first three stages are implemented successfully. The programme covers the cost of transportation, refreshment, training, and dedication of $2000 for 20 start-ups. Priority is given to the youth, women with sustainable business ideas while public sector employees and university/technical institute students are ineligible to apply to the project.
