employment to / for the unemployed

I am wodering whether there is any difference between using "to" or "for" in the context indictated in the title.

I tried googling both version but they yielded approximately equal results.

for example:

"The goal was to provide employment for the unemployed youth and help them improve their living conditions."

"The initial aim of KEHYPAJA was to provide employment to the unemployed, especially the youth."

Could you please tell me if there is any difference in the meaning that is worth bearing in mind?

Thanks.

    No, I think in both examples they mean exactly the same thing. To give jobs to people who don't have jobs.
