Skills4Work: Improving Resilience of Refugee and Host Population in Jordan through Development of Livelihood Skills and Opportunities
The project aimed at working with refugees and host communities in Jordan by delivering a combination of skills training, job placements, apprenticeships, and other types of support.
At the same time, it upgraded and developed the capacity of multiple enterprises; more specifically, those that offered new job opportunities or needed skills that were scarce or unavailable in the workforce market. By equipping refugees and host communities with sought-after skills that matched the needs of targeted enterprises, the project aimed at boosting employment as well as creating access to safe and sustainable livelihood opportunities in the Northern areas of Jordan and urban centers.
Supported communities mainly included Syrian refugees and host communities, with priority given to women-headed households, youth, and people with disabilities.
