In partnership with companies and vocational training centers, the program focuses on:

-    upgrading the training curricula,

-    providing equipment for the technical practice,

-    training the trainers,

-    developing the “Guidance & Employment” activities.

The program has been launched in 2007 in Lebanon and has then been implemented in Egypt, Morocco, Ivory Coast, Liberia, and Congo.

In Vietnam, IECD successfully launched the Seeds of Hope project at Thu Duc College of Technology (TDC) and the Ho Chi Minh City Technical and Economic College (HOTEC) in 2017. The third school, namely District 12 Technical and Economic College (DTTEC) joined the project in 2019.
