The Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth would like to extend our heartfelt solidarity to those affected by the Ukrainian crisis. The ongoing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine has disrupted the lives of millions of Ukrainians, causing immense suffering, loss of lives, and devastation of enterprises, jobs and livelihoods. Young people, especially young women, are particularly impacted by emergencies and protracted crises – and can act as important agents in fostering peace and resilience.
We commend the work of those working tirelessly at the frontlines to respond to the crisis as well as those working behind the scenes to support the crisis-affected populations. We would like to take this opportunity to share with you the initiatives and actions undertaken by some Decent Jobs for Youth partners to support young Ukrainians amidst the crisis.
