Colour Me Capable: In Somalia, WFP Enables Women To Learn New Skills

One of the World Food Programme’s main priorities is to strengthen communities so that individuals can support themselves and their families. Through its Food-for-Training activities, WFP provides food rations to encourage community members to participate in training that teaches practical vocational skills, such as literacy or tailoring. In Bossaso, in northern Somalia, women are learning how to tie dye cloth and make woven goods – skills that will stand them in good stead as they seek to rebuild their lives after fleeing their homes elsewhere because of conflict.
