GORI. More than 60 graduates of the Vocational Education and Training Course organized by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) in co-operation with the Gori University received certificates on August 2 in Gori.
The University of Gori has been providing vocational education and re-training in the areas of construction, food processing industry and agriculture. Vocational education in the 12 professions and theoretical and practical re-training courses in the 16 professions were set up by the UNDP as part of the EU-funded initiative “Early Recovery Efforts in Georgia.”
The initiative is part of the programme for early recovery, which UNDP implements with Euro 4.4 million in EU funding. The joint initiative in Gori is the response to the August 2008 war, which severely affected livelihoods in or close to the conflict areas. It is designed to provide more income generation opportunities and to encourage economic recovery and development in the region.
