Entrepreneurial Women in Libya's Tech Sector

It is not a secret that companies prefer to hire men than women in Libya, but with the right support, like the one provided through this program, I am sure we will be able to compete in the job market at the same level as men,” declares Tafaha.

The program is designed to ensure everyone has equal opportunities to build a career by equipping all entrepreneurs with the right skills to succeed.

I believe in myself and in my project. The time that I spend in Operation Pour helps me a lot and I am confident that I will find a job,” confesses Aziza.

One of the most important assets that I found in this boot camp is that is helping more and more women to enter in the Libyan technology sector. TEC is opening doors that will break stereotypes to empower and include Libyan women,” concludes Hala.

The main objective of this programme is to comprehensively reinforce protection and resilience of migrants, refugees and host communities in Libya while supporting an improved migration management along the migration routes in the country.
