Skills4Work: Improving Resilience of Refugee and Host Population in Jordan through Development of Livelihood Skills and Opportunities

The project aims at working with refugees and host communities in Jordan by delivering a combination of skills training, job placements, apprenticeships, and other types of support. Through business development services, it will upgrade and develop the capacity of multiple enterprises; more specifically, those who offer new job opportunities or need skills that are scarce or unavailable in the workforce market. By equipping refugees and host communities with sought-after skills, the project aims at boosting employment as well as creating access to safe and sustainable livelihood opportunities in the Northern areas of Jordan and urban centres. Supported communities will mainly include Syrian and other vulnerable populations such as Sudanese and Yemeni refugees, with priority to women-headed households, youth, and people with disabilities.
