On September 1, 2017, the State Committee for Family, Women and Children Affairs (SCFWCA) and UNESCO jointly launched a project called "Strengthening employment opportunities and professional qualifications of refugees and IDP girls with incomplete education". The main goal of the project is to ensure that incomplete educated refugee and IDP girls are provided with the opportunities on employment by arranging different courses on computer skills, awareness raising trainings on women rights and legislation and their integration into society preventing them from becoming a victim of early marriage. The refugees and IDP girls will be trained on computer, as well as basic skills for employment courses within 2 months. In addition, the project includes the following topics: "CEDAW Convention and its Additional Protocol", "Law on Gender Equality of the Republic of Azerbaijan", "Prevention of Early Marriage", "Prevention of Domestic Violence", "Women's Empowerment", detailed information on "Fight against Trafficking in Persons" and "Women's Labor Rights". In the framework of the project, the educational brochures and materials will be prepared and distributed to the trainees during each workshop.
