In our new brand positioning, we emphasize that a better future is possible with the power arising from the combination of technology and people and we say 'Together is possible'. The first step we took in this direction was the platform 'We are together in this business'. One of the groups most affected by the pandemic process is those who have lost their jobs or are in the process of seeking a job in worsening economic conditions. According to Turkstat, Turkey number of unemployed persons in the age 15 and over across in February 2021 was 4 million 236 thousand people; The unemployment rate was at the level of 13,4 percent. We believe that staying in touch with the digital world plays an important role in job search and self-development. With this in mind, we took action to ensure that those who lost their jobs in the pandemic do not fall behind the digital society. With the platform 'We are together in this business', our aim is to facilitate the access of individuals who have lost their jobs for a short time or completely in the pandemic to the digital world and to ensure that they benefit from all the advantages of digitalization. We want to support them in this difficult process and make them feel that we are with them. We believe that it is everyone's right to be a part of the digital society, and everyone should benefit from the equal opportunity brought by digitalization. As Vodafone, we will continue to do things that draw strength from technology-human cooperation and carry our society to a better future. "
UNDP Deputy Resident Representative in Turkey Sukhrob Khojimatov, He said: As the devastating effect of the Covid-19 epidemic accelerates, all layers of society in all countries are disproportionately affected and the youth suffer the most from this situation. Access of the young generation to education, social support instruments and employment opportunities has been seriously affected. Access to quality jobs for young men and women has drastically declined. Moreover, as the young population does not have sufficient income and savings to ensure the sustainability of their livelihoods, they are greatly affected by the increase in poverty and inequality created by the pandemic. Within the scope of the states' struggle for recovery after the epidemic, we need to focus on youth who are neither in employment nor in education. UNDP Turkey, understands the complexity and urgency of these challenges them together and our valued partners who signed this cooperation to overcome thanks to Vodafone and Habitat Association. "
