QUDRA 2 Programme's EDP and Detergent Making Training

02nd Nov. 2020 marked an exceptional date in the 2020 academic year at KOU. A group of 20 unemployed young women from the Host Community, Syrian Refugees and IDPs have joined Entrepreneurship Development Programme at the Central Library of Koya University. At the end of the training, each trainee has gained the best knowledge on the EDP and the essential elements of business plans and sustainable startups as the first milestone.

The second milestone was to conduct technical training on making different types of detergents. After two weeks of intensive training, the trainees attained substantial knowledge about making the products. The outcome is not only steered towards profit gaining but also to act as a CSO serving the local residents of Koya.

Our Mission

Qudra 2 is a Multi-donor Action jointly co-financed by the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis (EUTF Syria), the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) to contribute to alleviating the impact of the Syrian and Iraqi crises on refugees, internally displaced persons (IDPs) and host communities in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Iraq. The Action is jointly implemented by five European Implementing Partners: GIZ (Organisation), AECID (Partner, EF (Partner), HIA (Grant beneficiary from GIZ) and ENABEL (Grant beneficiary from GIZ).

The objective is to strengthen the resilience of refugees, IDPs, returnees and host communities in response to the protracted crisis in Syria and Iraq. This will be achieved by the programme through the following four components selected according to each respective country`s needs:

1. Education and Protection

2. Employment promotion and income generation

3. Local governmental institutions and civil society organizations

4. Social cohesion as a cross-cutting component

Our Vision

In Kurdistan Region the pressure on higher educational institutions to change is increasing. Mostly in the direction of filling the gap between academia and industry. Hence supplying the market with the skills needed and alleviate the unemployment problem are of substantial significance.

A new scheme of intervention originally proposed by Career Development Directorate (CDD) at Koya University is being put forward in the context of QUDRA 2 Programme. One of the facets that the proposal is concentrating on the introduction of the Entrepreneurship Development Program (EDP) via CDD at KOU inside KRI. This new but vital approach is in action at KOU since May 20th 2020 after signing a contract with GIZ. According to the articles of the contract; CDD has to arrange the recruitment process of the trainees; conduct EDP trainings; conduct technical training on liquid soap and sanitizer production, purchase raw materials and equipment for the trainees and facilitate the mentoring stage of the established cottage industries dedicated to manufacture products which ultimately contributes in the common fight against COVID19 pandemic.
