Youth Employability Platform
Deaconess Foundation, Somaliland Y-PEER and their partner Telesom built an app, Hiigsi, to support youth employment in Somaliland. The app is designed to work both on mobile phones and computer desktops. The long-term objective is to connect young people to employers, skill providers (NGOs, government institutions, companies) and mentors. Hiigsi means the horizon or a goal to be reached. It often refers to a younger person acquiring a promising skill or secure job.
