Those who have already started their small business face many problems in its maintaining and development, and need proper additional support in improving their work. The skills and knowledge related to entrepreneurship are not incorporated in regular education curricula in elementary and secondary schools.
Institutions for education have been out of modern trends for more than a decade, and lack capacities to follow up and transfer new approaches and streams from more developed societies. Compared to the real needs, there is a lack of training and consultancy programs for development of personal skills and knowledge related to entrepreneurship.
Self-employment is seen as an efficient way of resolving the problem of unemployment among refugees, returnees and IDPs. To manage own business, people need entrepreneurship skills which are not in regular education curricula in elementary and secondary schools and are often neglected. These skills help in initiation of own business.
