GU-T1303 : Employment And Online Education Programs To Reduce The Unemployment Gap And Provide Economic Empowerment To Women In Guatemala

Project Status: Closed

The general objective of this technical cooperation is to create a pilot that studies the potential positive impact of online training for employability. This in order to corroborate -or not- the hypothesis that explains that flexible employment, doable from home and driven by a technological platform, can provide economic income to women who are currently out of the labor market due to their rigidity. The goal will be to finalize the first year of implementation with a baseline study and an impact analysis that determines the potential of this initiative to generate employment and improve the quality of life of women who participate. The specific objective is to test the model of online platforms for the generation of employment opportunities and online education to improve the labor inclusion of women to achieve the following: (i) an analysis of the situation in Guatemala that identifies the viability of the export of services through the Cloud; (ii) an online concept platform that allows access to online courses with different functions that help connect registered women with job opportunities; and (iii) an analysis of results to identify lessons learned, as well as its dissemination so that other countries in the region can get to know this experience and may consider similar initiatives.
