Youth Experiences in Jewelry-Making: Improving work potential and opportunities of youth in Cauca and Nariño, Colombia

This report, produced by Save the Children Canada, provides a succinct overview of the Bulgari-funded jewellery-making project, formally named Improving Work Potential and Opportunities of Youth in Cauca and Nariño. It does so by describing the history of the project and its particular geo-political and development context, as well as focusing on key achievements, based on the experiences recounted by youth beneficiaries and other project stakeholders, including teachers, parents, educational staff, consultants and Save the Children and partner staff, as well as through key project documents. A particular focus is given to gender equality and the gender norms in the region. This was identified as a critical factor for the success of the project by both the youth participants and other stakeholders. Finally, key learnings and recommendations are presented to address the identified challenges and opportunities.
