Empolyability Hub 2023-2024

Summary of Project Implementation: GFC has implemented 4 out of 6 of the Employability Hub project activities, with 34% of beneficiaries finding employment. Furthermore, a significant number of participants who completed the Job-related ICT Skills and Basic Greek courses have reported improvements in their ICT and Greek language competencies, as well as an increased level of satisfaction with the courses.  

Participant 1  

As a 29-year-old asylum seeker from Somalia, I’ve always wanted to learn how to use technology. Through the Employability Hub Programme, I participated in an ICT course and learned how to use the computer for various purposes, especially job-related. Following completing the ICT Course, I aim to enhance my digital skills further. Also, GFC’s assistance in CV creation was invaluable for job hunting, a challenging task for asylum seekers in Cyprus. I plan to leverage this CV to boost my employment prospects  

Participant 2 

As a recognised refugee in Cyprus, I attended a Labour Rights seminar. Despite having a 5-day contract at a local grocery store since 2021, I frequently work 6 days without choosing it, feeling vulnerable and exploited due to my limited knowledge of worker’s rights. The seminar enlightened me about my fundamental labour rights, how to handle such situations, and where to report potential exploitations.
