Where We Work: Paraguay
Through New Employment Opportunities (NEO), we worked across sectors to create an alliance of Paraguayan organizations and build local capacity to serve youth with employability training and services.
Through our entra21initiative, we equipped underserved youth who were considered to be harder to hire with the technical and life skills training sought by employers. Working with a local partner, we empowered young people with visual, hearing, physical, and mental disabilities. The partnership and its work saw success: thanks to the training they received, the majority of participants found work. Our Passport to Success® curriculum also prepared them with skills such as confidence and knowledge of how to work well in teams. By continuing to work with local partners such as Centra del Información y Recursos para el Desarollo for NEO as well as entra21, we’ve created lasting change in Paraguay.
