280 Graduates Honored by UNRWA Damascus Training Center

Some 280 students, mostly Palestinian refugees, have received graduation certificates from UNRWA Damascus Training Centre (DTC), located in AlMezzah.

In attendance were UNRWA’s Director of Syria Operations, Amanya Michael Ebye, and Director-General of the General Authority for Palestinian Arab Refugees, Ali Mustafa.

Speaking at the event, Ebye acclaimed the students’ perseverance and strong determination in the war-stricken country.

A few months earlier, UNRWA said it has been able to provide vocational training opportunities for more than 1,500 Palestine refugees in Syria thanks to the generous contributions of donors like the European Union.

According to the UN refugee agency, vocational training has proven to be a vital lifeline in a region deeply affected by the conflict in Syria, which in 2019 has entered its eighth year.

UNRWA also said that its vocational centers play an active role in ensuring that their graduates find employment once they graduate. One of the most successful ways to ensure this is to offer on-the job training.

UNRWA provided vocational training to 1,500 Palestine refugees in 2018. Funding from donors including the European Union has also allowed the Agency to introduce new short courses, such as hairdressing and welding.

Vocational training courses include mechatronics, air-conditioning (AC) maintenance, sewing, computer maintenance, plumbing, and car electricity, along with medical, information, and engineering specialties.
