UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, empowerment

Ethiopia is undergoing significant democratic reforms which require more empowered and informed citizens to actively participate in decision making processes. However, young Ethiopian children demonstrate low levels of reading comprehension, with limited knowledge and skills necessary to achieve the minimum learning competencies (MLCs) for their grade level[1]. Investment in skills is needed to bring about structural transformation and meet the country’s ambitious socio-economic goals. Building the skills of adolescent girls and boys can empower them to become self-sufficient and active citizens better able to make informed choices about their lives and potential occupation[2]. This is especially important for adolescent girls who face considerable barriers in achieving their full potential from discrimination to and risk of child marriage, violence (including sexual and gender-based) and early pregnancy.

It is estimated that 85 percent of the jobs that today’s learners hold in 2030 have not yet been invented. Limiting investment to employment related skills (e.g. carpentry, coding, accounting or engineering) is therefore insufficient, as these types of skills become outdated in a rapidly changing economy. A focus on children’s foundational skills during early grades- notably literacy, numeracy and digital skills - will ensure that young people are empowered with the human capital needed for employment and thereby creating a conducive environment for prospective investors and employers. Further, investment in transferrable skills - such as communication, creativity, decision making, problem solving and critical thinking - develops competencies that can be applied in different situations and across multiple jobs and challenges in life. Without developing skills at the right age and educational level, young people are excluded from accessing further training and employment opportunities.

Investment in developing skills and human capital is a key focus for the Government of Ethiopia. Human Development and Technology Capacity Building is the fourth priority area in the Ethiopia’s Growth and Transformation Plan 2 (GTP2), the Prime Minister’s “A New Horizon of Hope” dashboard (2018) identifies human capital as a key enabler for good governance, democracy and justice, and the Ethiopian Education Development Roadmap (2018-2030) places strong emphasis on building the skills of children and young people to develop sufficient knowledge capital not just for the workforce but also for life. As of December 2018, Ethiopia had 2.95 million Internally Displaced People (IDP) and was host to approximately 920,000 refugees. A large proportion of those displaced are children and young people, for whom the limited opportunities result in risks of exploitative labour and unsafe migration.

UNICEF seeks to contribute to the realization of the rights of all children, especially the most disadvantaged. Since learning and skills development are key areas to achieve this, UNICEF’s Strategic Plan 2018 – 2021 includes a focus on strengthening education systems to effectively support children and adolescents to learn and to develop skills for personal empowerment, active citizenship, non-violence, gender equality and employability, both in and out of schools, including in humanitarian situations. This is articulated in the relevant Goal areas as well as UNICEF’s Programme Guidance for the Second Decade: programming with and for Adolescents (2018). This is furthermore articulated in Generation Unlimited, a global partnership that aims to ensure that every young person (10-24) is in education, learning, training or employment by 2030. GenU has three priorities: 1) Secondary age education: Adolescent girls and boys need support so they can complete primary and secondary education with meaningful learning outcomes. This support should include accredited and flexible learning opportunities for those who cannot attend regular school; 2) Skills for learning, employability and decent work: Adolescents and young people should have access to opportunities to develop skills for learning, personal empowerment, employability and active citizenship; 3) Empowerment, especially for girls: Adolescent girls, boys and other young people need support to understand their rights and build their own assets and agency to make life choices. This includes opportunities to civically engage, including digitally, and to voice their opinions on issues that affect their lives. UNICEF’s Young People’s Agenda (YPA, 2018) is centred on finding new ways to ensure that every young person is in school, learning, training or employment by 2030. At the regional level, UNICEF ESAR’s Investment case for Adolescents and Young People is furthermore aligned with GenU and the YPA. Investing in adolescents’ learning and skills development –in particular for the most disadvantaged– is a priority that UNICEF has identified for the second decade of a child’s life. This priority links directly to the achievement of SDG targets, including those related to ending poverty in all its forms, enhancing education and life learning opportunities and promoting employment and decent work for all. Strategies adopted by UNICEF to provide better opportunities for adolescents to be productive and break intergenerational cycles of poverty include 1) accelerating programming for the retention of primary school students, transition to post-primary education and secondary completion with a focus on quality and learning outcomes; 2) investing in programmes that nurture adolescents as innovators and critical thinkers, both through formal or non-formal learning environments; 3) supporting social protection approaches that build the skills and knowledge required for employability and entrepreneurship; and 4) eliminating child labour, in particular hazardous work, for children who are old enough to work.

UNICEF takes a multi-sectoral approach towards strengthening policy and programme interventions that improve skills development for adolescent boys and girls (10-17 years). This area of work will build on the evidence and expertise generated by the various sections within UNICEF (education, child protection, adolescence and social inclusion) as well as the expertise of other organizations.

Since issues of employability require an approach that links both the supply and demand side, collaboration between key multilateral actors is a critical component of UNICEF’s work and it is built on 1) good practices in the areas of learning and employability of adolescents; 2) the complementarity of roles between organizations working in these arena; and 3) lessons learned from existing regional/country level collaboration in the area of learning and employability.

UNICEF Ethiopia seeks to contribute to the Government’s efforts in building the foundational and transferrable skills of children and adolescents, therein complementing the work of other development partners who are engaged in the areas of income-generation and job-specific skills training. UNICEF’s work on skills development has a focus on the most disadvantaged adolescents, both those who are have dropped out of school or are at risk of dropping out, and older adolescents who are not in school or training or employment
