PODGORICA, 5 April 2011 – A group of 20 women from the rural Bar region will graduate from a three-month computer skills course on Wednesday in a ceremony that also marks the completion of the first phase of an OSCE-supported training project to empower unemployed women in rural areas of Montenegro.
During the graduation ceremony, the women will receive certificates in advanced computer skills. The OSCE Mission and the Ministry for Human and Minority Rights' Gender Department organized the three-month training course to equip unemployed women from rural areas with computer skills so that they have better chances on the job market.
The course was supported by the Bar municipality's Gender Focal Point, its Office of the Bureau for Employment and the “Đerđ Kastrioti Skenderbeg” Primary School in the village of Ostros. Similar courses will later be held in the municipalities of Bijelo Polje, Nikšić and Pljevlja municipalities during 2011.
The Minister for Human and Minority Rights, Ferhat Dinoša, and the Deputy Head of the OSCE Mission to Montenegro, Waldemar Figaj, will take part in the ceremony, which will be attended by representatives of the institutions involved in the project.
Journalists are invited to attend the ceremony, at 13.00 on Wednesday, 6 April 2011, in the Primary School “Đerđ Kastrioti Skenderbeg”, Ostros, Municipality of Bar.
