United Nations Development Program together with Luhansk and Donetsk employment centers implemented a training program "Development of entrepreneurship skills among IDPs and local population of Donetsk and Luhansk regions".  The aim of the program is to facilitate the entrepreneurs, who lost their business in Donbas, to restore their activity in other regions of Ukraine. It is expected to involve about 1200 IDPs.

48 trainings are planned to be conducted in 8 regions of Ukraine with the highest level of IDPs: Kyiv, Odesa, Kharkiv, Zaporizhya (and  Berdiansk city), Dnipropetrovsk (and  Kryvyi Rih), Poltava (and Kremenchuh) and controlled by the government of Ukraine in Kramatorsk, Mariupol (Donetsk region) and Severodonetsk (Luhansk region). 

The initiative is a part of the “Rapid response to the social and economic issues of IDPs in Ukraine” program, which is funded by the Government of Japan. Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine, the State Employment Service and local authorities also joined this project.
