What We Do

JOBA targets the improvement of the non-state training market in Mozambique, to overcome the mismatch between the supply and demand of skills in the labour market. JOBA aims to build constructive partnerships between non-state technical and vocational education and training (TVET) providers and the private sector, supporting an inclusive and sustained approach to job creation.

  • Supporting young women and marginalized youth to access quality training and job opportunities

The intended impact, expected outcomes and planned outputs of the project are as follows:
