After two years of testing and refining, UNICEF Lebanon has officially launched their Generation of Innovation Leaders program, designed to tackle the high rates of youth unemployment in Lebanon.The project proposes that the solution to youth unemployment in Lebanon might be found in the digital economy. However, the type of knowledge and skills needed to enter the world of technology is often acquired outside the mainstream educational system, and tends to be more accessible to youth from more affluent families, UNICEF Lebanon Representative Tanya Chapuisat told The Daily Star. GIL was started as an attempt to give marginalized youth access to the world of tech, through the establishment of innovation labs throughout the country.According to Zakaria, UNICEF is planning to be part of the program until the end of 2020 .
