The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) funded a program for training rural youths from Panyikang, Nasir and Ulang counties and was implemented by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).

UNIDO gives motivation incentives to each trainee per a week and the trainees wanted to cause a chaos at MVTC over incentives which are paid in cash on Monday.

The first training in 2012 in Malakal was forced to close because the trainees demanded an increase of their incentives and threatened to kill the UNIDO coordinator if their needs were not met.

The second batch of 164 trainees graduated last week after completing three-month training in various vocational skills.

“We are teaching you to own knowledge. You will master it and nobody will take that
knowledge from you. The incentives the organization gives you are only for motivation and should not fight people for it,” said Aban Makol Ajal.

“You should learn discipline to stay friendly with any society. You will be given a certificate and that why you came here,” he added.

Makol told the trainees to use all the vocational skills they have gained during the course to develop areas.
