    Kukes miners learn about their rights in health and safety at work

    17 May 2011

    Vlahna Village, like many in the region of Kukes, has been highly affected by youth migration, a prevalence of under-employment and informal working practices. However, thanks to new direct investment from abroad, the nearby Vlahna Mine, home to the second largest chromium reserve in Albania and one of the largest in Europe, is being put to productive use once more following its closure in 2006. To ensure the transition from informal to formal employment, 40 miners are receiving training in occupational safety and health as part of their recruitment, to ensure improved working conditions and long-term job security for the local community. The training programme has been realized thanks to the One UN Joint Programme Youth Employment and Migration, funded by the Government of Spain through the MDG Achievement Fund.
