"I'm a strong believer in the 'less is more' approach. In #Jordan, many illiterate farmers experience difficulties in getting agricultural advice. To be able to actually reach them, I created a simple, user-friendly, and interactive solution for learning and educational material using short, to-the-point videos." – Mohannad, 30, founder of Nahda. 🌿 
Mohannad participated in our Idea Bank Project - Jordan #hackathon to help the Ministry of Agriculture find solutions to boost farmers' demand for education, training, and development support. This will in turn increase the quality and quantity of their crops, driving more #sales and international #exports and hence improving #livelihoods. ⬆️

For years, Sawsan Khlaif had suffered the negative effects of using chemical beauty products. Today, with the support of our EU-funded GIMED project, Sawsan established her own business, where she uses home-grown aloe vera and essential oils to produce #green, natural, and organic products in #Palestine. 🌱

The shift from reactive to proactive responses to #health and #wellbeing is also manifested in #travel, giving rise to #wellnesstourism. 🧘‍♀️ 
While medical tourism involves those seeking treatment for a specific condition, #wellness #tourism is more preventative in nature, focusing on #healing, relaxation, and finding your #zen. 🕉 
With support from @nlinjo, we are curating experiences and #trails for those interested in wellness and connecting with their higher selves. 🌄

“Upon completing LI’s Digital Avenue training programme, I started landing #jobs on different digital platforms like Upwork and LinkedIn. I learned how to sell my Arabic skills by pursuing my own online project to teach Arabic as a second language" – Aya, 24, participated in our training programme along with over 900 other young Jordanians 🇯🇴.

Digital Avenue's main goal is to reskill Jordanian youth and help them tap into global #digiwork opportunities. This project is funded by @usembassyjo.

“In comparison to conventional work, #entrepreneurship and #innovation do not confine you in terms of thinking and creating – you can go anywhere and do anything. The world is your oyster.” 💡- Alaa, 29, co-founder of JoChain, #Jordan. 
Alaa came up with an idea to develop a database that identifies and connects #ICT graduates with companies willing to train them. His #digital solution will automate the process, boost efficiency and facilitate the access of ICT graduates to more training and #employment opportunities. ✅
