Dohuk; Successful Training for Future Yezid Young Girls.

BPD chose camp Yezid course participants from Iraq to attend the 3 days Small Business Management training in Dohuk, 5-7 July. Among the participants were also girls from outside the camp. The training focused on new skills in how to manage a small business or other type of work when in charge of the activity.

This management training is an important element in making the Small Business project sustainable so that the local partners can operate the program on their own. Both the content of the training and the performance of the newly choosen BPD partners was rated 6 on a scale from 1 to 6.

BIP company leaders Bjørn Reite & Wiggo Slåttsveen attended the training and visited many camps in Erbil, Dohuk and Zakho. They met training participants who had started their own businesses with good results.
