SPARK Signs MoU with ILO

As a result of SPARK’s IGNITE Conference in November, SPARK is happy to recognise collaboration with the International Labour Organization (ILO).  Formalised with a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the ILO grants SPARK the non-exclusive right to use ILO trainings, including:

–        GYB: Generate your Business
–        SYB: Start your business
–        IYB Improve your business
–        EYB Expand your business

With a mission that devotes itself to promoting justice and  internationally recognized human and labour rights, pursuing that labour peace is essential to prosperity, the ILO trainings compliment SPARK Solutions and Services.  SPARK aims to use ILO Trainers where relevant, but will continue to use SPARK Business Skills trainings in their Business Startup Centres and other applicable projects.

We are excited to be taking steps towards ongoing collaboration with the ILO and see this as a strategic partnership towards a shared goal of creating economic stability in conflict affected environments.
