The overall goal of the projects was to create preconditions for the employment of 18 women in the industrial sector, their stay and business in Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as the reduction of the number of unemployed women.
To empower 18 unemployed women
Professional education for CNC operators and work on KUKA industrial robots
The projects “XX Operator” and “CNC Operators” were implemented by the ITT Foundation in cooperation with the City of Tuzla and DKR German Center for Robotics, with the aim of educating and empowering unemployed women from the City of Tuzla.
Participants in this project had the opportunity to learn from experienced experts from the DKR Center and to gain extensive knowledge about working with KUKA industrial robots and FANUC CNC machine and its management.
The common goal of both projects was to provide the unemployed women of our community with a unique education opportunity for this very promissing profession. The participants were of different ages, with different motives for participation, but all with the same goal: learning and the desire to progress.
After completeing the trainings the participants initiated the process of finding employment, as well as the process of helping them to access end users.
We are very pleased with the outcome of these projects since some of the participants already found an employment, right after finishing their education.
