Skilling youths for employability in Tonga

Commonwealth of Learning (COL) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Tonga Women in ICT (TWICT) aimed at fostering sustainable development through skills development for youths in Tonga.

TWICT is a Tonga-based local non-profit organization dedicated to promoting gender equality and digital inclusion. With years of experience in the field, TWICT is well-equipped to contribute significantly to the success of this initiative. 

The primary objective of this partnership is to empower youths in Tonga, especially young women and youths with disabilities, by providing them with equitable access to quality training and learning opportunities. COL and TWICT will work together to provide various skills training including digital literacy, digital marketing, and leadership that can benefit Tonga as a whole. In a span of 6 months, this collaboration will train more than 300 youths which could lead to employment and entrepreneurship. This collaboration hopes to strengthen also within the region.
