Around 16 young people aged between 18-24 from five municipalities in Benghazi have participated in the "Baladiyati" project, aimed at providing young men and women with the knowledge and skills necessary to start social entrepreneurship projects in their communities.

On its Facebook page, on Monday, UNICEF explained that the jury selected 12 projects on social enterprises, pitched by six young men and six young women, noting that the winners will benefit from financial and technical support to start their projects.

Baladyiaty - in English, "My municipality" - is the short name conceived for the programme "Recovery, Stability and Socio-economic Development in Libya", funded by the European Union and implemented by the Italian Cooperation (AICS), UNDP and UNICEF.
