Training and Employment for Women and Youth

The Project Aim:

The project aims to better integrate youth and women in the economic life and in the private sector by granting them life skills and work ethics training adapted to the needs of the market, and then matching them to job vacancies in a network of Dutch and Egyptian partner companies.

A number of 400 youth (at least 300 young women) have been agreed upon by the partners to be the target the project needs to achieve. By the end of the 2-year program, at least 80% of the youth must be employed in the Dutch and Egyptian private sector.

  1. Life skills training and work ethics training for 400 young people for 15 training days, including the following topics: problem solving, dialogue, negotiation skills, CV writing and interviews, communication, human rights, labor law, and work etiquette.
